What Is The Salvation Army?
When he saw hurt and pain surrounding the people in his community, William Booth, a Methodist preacher in London, England, decided that he would work to do something about it. Since 1865, The Salvation Army has grown into an international organization that serves millions of people around the world. We provide food, shelter, and essential services.
We do this, motivated by the same love of God today that motivated Booth so many years ago.
Sharing God's love with others is important to our mission as well. We believe that the creator desires to have a relationship with each and every person He has created.
The Salvation Army of High Point
The Salvation Army began responding to needs in the Greater High Point area in 1913. Every day, we strive to full our promise of 'Doing the Most Good' by bringing hope, love, and light where it is needed most. Not only do we serve those in need of food, clothing, and shelter, we have afterschool and summer day camp programs that we operate in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We also operate a Family Store and offer innovative, life-saving programs like Pathway of Hope and William Booth Garden Apartments, aimed a longer term, coordinated care.
