Through our housing programs and services, we help local families persevere through difficult times — families like Betsy's.

Since getting evicted, Betsy and her three children had been sleeping in their car. Once Betsy came to The Salvation Army, our caseworkers helped her locate housing options and navigate prospective landlords. After many hours of paperwork, phone calls and prayer, we were able to help Betsy find a new home! “This is definitely a family that has learned how to persevere and advocate for themselves,” said Betsy’s caseworker.

When you need help, who do you call? ☎️ For many of our neighbors, there’s no one they can reach out to through hard times — when the lights go out, when there’s no food on the table and when it seems like no one cares.

That’s why we hold our arms and doors open to all who come to us in need. ❤️

The Salvation Army provides food pantries and meal programs. These programs are especially crucial in “food deserts,” where entire communities lack easy access to a grocery store. The Salvation Army also offers a variety of food box distributions at various times and for different events. This has been crucial during the last year, when the need grew exponentially due to those affected by COVID-19.

For some, they found themselves at The Salvation Army’s doors for the first time in their lives, and without question, food was served.

A Brief History of The Salvation Army

Soon after beginning his ministerial career in England in 1852, William Booth abandoned the concept of the traditional church pulpit in favor of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ directly to the people. Walking the streets of London, he preached to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute. When fellow clergymen disagreed with Booth’s unconventional approach, he and his wife Catherine withdrew from the church to train evangelists throughout England. The couple returned to the East End of London in 1865, where many followers joined their fight for the souls of lost men and women. Within 10 years, their organization, operating under the name “The Christian Mission," had over 1,000 volunteers and evangelists. Thieves, prostitutes, gamblers, and drunkards were among their first converts to Christianity. And soon, those converts were also preaching and singing in the streets as living testimonies to the power of God. When Booth read a printer's proof of the 1878 “Christian Mission” annual report, he noticed the statement "The Christian Mission is a volunteer army." Crossing out the words "volunteer army," he penned in "Salvation Army." From those words came the basis of the foundation deed of The Salvation Army. From that point onward, converts became soldiers of Christ and were known then, as now, as Salvationists. They launched an offensive throughout the British Isles that, in spite of violence and persecution, converted 250,000 Christians between 1881 and 1885. Their message spread rapidly, gaining a foothold in America and soon after Canada, Australia, France, Switzerland, India, South Africa, Iceland, and Germany.

Today, The Salvation Army is active in virtually every corner of the world and serves in over 126 countries, offering the message of God’s healing and hope to all those in need.
