Our Programs

Serving Mecklenburg and Union Counties since 1904

Every day in Mecklenburg and Union counties, The Salvation Army provides hope, care, comfort, guidance, and encouragement to people in need. Whether it is caring for women and children in the Center of Hope homeless shelter, guiding at-risk youth in our Boys & Girls Clubs, providing dignity to low income seniors living in our Booth Garden apartments, helping chemically addicted men and women stand up to their addictions, or offering comfort as we help victims rebuild their lives in times of disaster—we are there.
