In our community, The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte serves more than 1,500 of our neighbors every day. They are:
- School-aged children needing positive communities during out-of-school times.
- Women and children without housing and nowhere to turn.
- Senior citizens needing affordable housing due to their limited incomes.
- Men ravaged by their addictions needing a place to reclaim sobriety.
Many turn to The Salvation Army having lost hope, a sense of personal worth, and dignity. Our mission to meet human needs without discrimination means more than just making sure the homeless are sheltered and school-aged kids have a place to go. It means being hope in the face hopelessness. It means speaking hope into our neighbors’ lives until they rediscover their own reason to hope.
We are in the midst of a campaign we are calling the “We Speak Hope” Initiative. It’s an effort to raise $1.5 million in additional support to enable us to reach even more of our neighbors with programs and services they need to thrive and flourish.
These funds are critical, allowing us to expand our services at the Salvation Army Center of Hope to prevent homelessness for 200 families and expand our Rapid Rehousing program to 60 more. With these resources, we’ll be able serve 100 more teens at our Boys & Girls Clubs, as well as open new Clubs in some of the most desperate neighborhoods in Mecklenburg and Union counties.
Join us, and help us speak hope into the lives of people who need it most. Donate
