Organized in 1984, The Salvation Army Chatham County Service Unit is operated by a professional staff member with the support of local residents who volunteer their time and energy to extend Salvation Army services to our community in dire need. Thousands of lives are touched by The Salvation Army Chatham County Service Unit each year.
The history of The Salvation Army began in 1865, when founder William Booth set up Christian Mission Centers. The name “The Salvation Army” was adopted in 1878, and the organization began to grow, and continues to work where the need is greatest, all motivated by its faith in God and the love of people.
Our purpose is to assistance residents of Chatham County who are in need of assistance, whether financially or any other unforeseen emergency.
