Through our community center and social services, we equip families with the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual support they need to foster better, brighter futures.
The Salvation Army meets families wherever they are in life and help them move to a more self-sufficient and productive path.
Head Start & Early Head Start
Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide young children and their families a chance to learn in an educational and creative environment. Programs also meet the needs of teen mothers and homeless families.
The Salvation Army after-school program provides children in Kindergarten through fifth grades a place to go after school to work on homework and visit with friends in a safe environment. Children can get help with homework, have a snack, play in the gym and more. Registration for the program is required, and there is a fee. Call 630.377.2760 for more information.
Weekly scout-style and mentoring programs are designed to support youth and teens as they navigate their world and grow into adulthood. Topics addressed can include bullying, peer pressure, making a positive impact on the community, family life and more. These programs are on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
