WHAT DO WE DO?
THE SALVATION ARMY IN BUNCOMBE COUNTY
The Salvation Army began responding to needs in the Carolinas in 1887. The Salvation Army has been serving Buncombe County since 1890, only three years after the first location opened in Raleigh. Our goal is to bring HOPE, LOVE, and LIGHT to every corner of our city.
We serve those in need of food, clothing, and shelter. LOCALLY, WE ASSIST APPROXIMATELY 24,000 RESIDENTS OF ASHEVILLE AND BUNCOMBE COUNTY EACH YEAR. We support Buncombe County youth through evidence-based programs in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We manage and implement innovative, life-saving programs like Project FIGHT (Freeing Individuals Gripped by Human Trafficking) and Center of Hope (emergency shelter).
