How We Meet Local Needs

Assess the Need

FIRST, we assess the needs of each community in which we serve. We work to understand the obstacles, hardships and challenges native to the area's particular population.

Build the Programs

NEXT, we build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.

Invest in the community

THEN, we offer the local programs to the local community working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical and emotional service.

The Salvation Army is different in every local community

because every local community is different.
