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.
because every local community is different.
Breadth of Service
From immediate relief, to short-term help, to long-term, sustainable change, we are dedicated to serving the physical, mental and spiritual needs of the poor, the lonely, and the lost.
With 82 cents of every dollar dedicated to directly supporting the needs of the community in which it was received, The Salvation Army is committed to stewarding every donation with integrity.
Since 1891, we have been working to provide sustainable solutions for the most vulnerable. We stay not just until the job is done, but long afterwards, to ensure that the healing continues.
