HISTORY: OLA MISSION - KELLY HALL

As discussed on the history page, Kelly Hall was completed in 1968 as a memorial to those who died in the fire.

Dank, dark, and full of garbage, Kelly Hall required extensive repair before it was reopened in January 2009.

Kelly Hall, now in partnership with Metro Chicago YMCA and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, houses our afterschool program, senior citizens program, our food pantries, and numerous other programs.
