Michael Barlow Center

Saint Leonard’s Ministries developed the Michael Barlow Center to provide education, training, and job placement services for formerly incarcerated men and women. This three-story facility opened its doors in March 2005. The ADA compliant building includes six classrooms and three meeting rooms. Classrooms include a completely equipped commercial kitchen and an 18-station computer lab with internet access.

Saint Leonard’s Ministries does not charge residents and program participants for any services. Residents and program participants can focus on healing, learning and their return to our communities.

Getting Started


Education and training opportunities are provided through collaboration with a variety of community partners. The Center staff includes a job developer and a retention counselor. Each year approximately 225 men and women receive services through the Michael Barlow Center.

The first step in using Michael Barlow Center services is to attend an orientation session which is held each Wednesday at 3 PM and Friday at 10 AM (except holidays) at the Michael Barlow Center: 2120 West Warren Blvd., Chicago, IL.

The Barlow Center gave me a starting point to get back to being a productive member of society.
