Today's modern Salvation Army holds to its founding principle that loving God means loving your neighbor in very practical ways. It's faith put into action, Christianity with its sleeves rolled up. Social services simply means making life better for others: those who lack the necessities for survival, those who find themselves in the throes of crisis, those who are trapped in destructive lifestyles or circumstances, those who long for meaning to their lives.  TSA Crest

Serving those in Need

Help is given freely each year to hundreds of thousands of people without regard to race, gender, culture or religion. For The Salvation Army believes that only in meeting the basic needs of people will they be able to live on a higher plain, reach their full potential, contribute effectively to society and cultivate their souls.

Social Services

Through The Salvation Army people's homes are heated in the bleak of winter, and they find refuge from summer's disparate heat at cooling centers. Those making the transition from welfare to work receive professional clothing to help them succeed, while underprivileged children awake to new toys on Christmas morning. In the wake of disasters like floods or tornadoes, The Salvation Army is on the scene extending hope and literally helping people rebuild their lives.


Heart to God, Hand to Man

In giving this service, The Salvation Army believes that preserving the individual's dignity is crucial and that for people to really prosper assistance must go beyond meeting the immediate, tangible need and address the larger issues. This often involves a continuum of care geared toward long-term solutions. It involves ministering to the whole person for each of us is woven of a seamless fabric of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

In community, too, there is an inherent connectedness. One person's life touches another. Like a pond, each individual's actions and circumstances ripple outward, affecting families and communities, influencing the future. We have a responsibility to each other; we have a responsibility to future generations. That's why The Salvation Army is there, 365 days a year, changing one life at a time.
