By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.
The Salvation Army is committed to providing assistance to families and individuals, local and homeless people. Basic purposes include assisting families in the solution of problems that interfere with healthy living, to promote individual family stability, and to assist in an awareness of God's care and love for every individual. Effort is made to work cooperatively with other assistance agencies to coordinate services to individuals and families.
The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army's history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.
