One final #shoutout to our #volunteers across Greater Chicagoland, Northern Illinois, and NWI! Thank you for helping us serve 1.1 million nutritious meals, support 396 human trafficking survivors, shelter more than a thousand people, and help 1,241 people recover from addiction this year. We couldn't Do The Most Good without YOU.

29% of Chicago's Homeless Population is 17 and under - children - according to the City of Chicago's 2017 Homeless Point-in-Time Count & Survey Report. Families in our community are hurting, hungry, homeless, or have lost hope. But we can help. It's more than just shelter & food.

Volunteers make a huge difference in the wake of disaster with The Salvation Army Emergency #Disaster Services. In 2017, EDS volunteers and staff had 52 disaster responses, including the national calls for help after Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria wreaked havoc in the Southern US. One couple shares their experience as EDS volunteers from Illinois serving in Puerto Rico - http://salar.my/OzMrTX.

#JoeMaddon says, “Volunteers are the unsung heroes. Without them, none of our efforts occur.” (We couldn't agree more!) Every month, Joe's #Respect90 Foundation salutes a distinguished volunteer; last month featured Carol Valentino-Barry. “Carol and her students are truly making a difference in the lives of those they have helped," says Linda Reiter, The Salvation Army’s Volunteer Resource Manager. "Her students have a better understanding of homelessness and what they can do to help because of her passion for #volunteering with us.” Get inspired at http://salar.my/fUhoTo.

One of the most prestigious awards given by The #SalvationArmy, The William Booth Award recognizes individuals who exemplify the spirit of our founder William Booth by “putting others first.” We are proud to present this award to Ernest & Theresa Sawyer, who have been involved with Salvation Army for more than a decade. We thank these generous friends for their long-time dedication, and are looking forward to bestowing the 2018 William Booth Award at our Civic Luncheon on May 8th....

The new facility supports a continuum of care that advances The #SalvationArmy’s promise of serving those in need, while ensuring they maintain their personal dignity.
