Loneliness is a serious problem that no medicine can cure. This is evident in hospitals, convalescent homes, long-term care facilities, correctional institutions, veteran’s medical centers, and children’s homes. The Salvation Army formed the Community Care Ministry (CCM) to help alleviate such suffering by connecting volunteers and Salvation Army officers and soldiers with those in hospitals, nursing homes, and correctional facilities.

The Harbor Light Corps visits Stroger Hospital, Jesse Brown Veterans Hospital, Hines Veterans Hospital and five long-term care facilities at Christmas and Easter. In addition, each month, volunteers visit Hines VA and one long-term care facility to provide needed hygiene items, prayer and fellowship.
