How We Help

The Salvation Army exists to meet human needs wherever, whenever, and however we can. Through programs that serve the mind, body, and soul, we alleviate the effects of poverty, then work to address root causes.

Meeting the needs of people in the name of Jesus Christ is the heart of The Salvation Army’s work. We open our arms to serve people who are most desperate for physical, emotional, and spiritual care. Because human needs differ from state to state, city to city, and person to person, we find local solutions through support from the local community. Together, we feed, we shelter, we mentor, we rehabilitate, we rescue victims of human trafficking, we help disaster survivors, we provide hope. We do the most good whenever and wherever we are needed.
