The Human Services Division is the local Salvation Army representative and may provide limited emergency assistance as available. Social workers provide advocacy and linkage with other services as appropriate and are available to Skokie community providers as needed. Please call 847/933-8208 for further information on assistance in any of these areas.

Assist-A-Family - Skokie Shares!

For over 15 years the Skokie Human Services Division has coordinated the Assist-A-Family Program designed to assist Skokie families with limited financial resources that might not otherwise be able to celebrate winter holidays.  Families receive gift certificates for area businesses which they use to purchase holiday food and to buy items specific to each family member's needs and wants.

This program provides all Skokie residents with the opportunity to join together in building a stronger more caring community.
