The Salvation Army is a religious and charitable organization that has been meeting human needs since 1865. Our mission is to strive to be the heart and soul of the community we serve. Emphasis is placed on programs that strengthen the individual, the family, and the community. Such programs include Home League, ESL, and our Food Pantry. Chicago Lawn has re-opened in order to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the economically disadvantaged individuals and families in its community. Our goal is to help each individual that seeks that which we can give, and while doing so taking the opportunity to minister to them about the love of God and the salvation through Jesus Christ.
