How Does The Salvation Army Help?

Since it's earliest beginnings, The Salvation Army has been about helping those in need. In those days, founder William Booth provided help to homeless and addicted men in London, England and later began to innovate new and exciting means by which these very men could become rehabilitated, receive spiritual help, and in turn pass along this assistance to another in need.

Today, this tradition continues to be at the heart of The Salvation Army's work. There are thousands of assitance programs operating in the United States alone ranging from youth development programs to Adult Rehabilitiation services, from Seniors homes to Family (Thrift) stores, from Worship centers to Emergency and Disaster Relief.

The Salvation Army is also at work in over 100 countries around the world providing all conceivable forms of assistance. The Salvation Army World Services provides such programs as HIV/AIDS clinics in Africa, homeless feeding services in Russia, micro-enterprise development in the Philippines, and homes for orphaned and abandoned children in Mexico, just to highlight a few.

Listed on these pages are some of the ways that Salvationists around the Carolinas are keeping this legacy alive. Many Salvation Army centers provide even more assistance programs. Please check with your local unit for more information on how The Salvation Army is assisting your community.
