Captain Nikki Hughes and Lieutenant Corey Hughes were appointed to the Englewood Red Shield Center in June of 2013. They had served in this community a year prior during Lieutenant Corey’s training for the College for Officer’s Training. They are thrilled to return to serve in leadership capacity and lead the community to salvation.

Captain Nikki came through the Social Services program when she was young. Lieutenant Corey met The Salvation Army through the ARC program. Overcoming his addiction, he re-dedicated his life to full service with the Lord. Both met while working at The Salvation Army and married later on. After marriage, is when the Lord called upon their hearts to full time ministry.

The Hughes’ have four children, in which all of them are teenagers. Life keeps them busy.

They have a passion to love people and live a life where people see Jesus in them.

The Adele and Robert Stern Red Shield Center

The Adele and Robert Stern Red Shield Center is The Salvation Army corps community center in Englewood, one of more than 20 corps community centers throughout Chicagoland.  Corps Community Centers are the heart and soul of The Salvation Army. They are the entry point for people in need seeking all types of assistance — assistance with feeding their families, paying rent and utility bills, educational and recreational programs for people of all ages, counseling, worship and more.

Programs and services offered by corps community centers are specific to the needs of the communities in which they are located and thus may differ from center to center. All corps community centers have something to offer to people of all ages – from children to seniors.

The Adele and Robert Stern Red Shield Center is a community-based facility that focuses on programs for the entire family. Through programs and services that address and enhance the needs of the body, mind and spirit, the center seeks to transform a community by changing lives and is open to everyone without discrimination and regardless of religious beliefs.
