After the Unspeakable, We Speak Hope

The Salvation Army will be there for you before, during and after disasters.


Disaster Services

In response to a disaster, The Salvation Army works in conjunction with government and non-profit agencies to provide food, personal necessities, and shelter to victims and first responders (i.e. firefighters, police and sheriff's departments). The Salvation Army has traditionally defined itself as the agency of last resort - serving those unable to find help with other agencies. Given this tradition, we ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community including the elderly, those with disabilities, and families with children, receive shelter, food, and assistance with rebuilding their lives.

The Salvation Army is committed to providing disaster services and operates seven service extension and emergency disaster departments in the California South Division. Throughout the year, each facility provides basic social services such as case management and food assistance for families and individuals in need. During times of disaster, the programs utilize our large-scale warehouse in the City of Bell as a base of operations for our disaster fleet of mobile canteens.
