The Salvation Army Traverse City strives to make a difference in our community.
Our focus is to meet the needs of families in our community. We do this through the Pathway of Hope program that helps families break the cycle of poverty, Youth programs that embrace children and character building, summer camp opportunities, music instruction and more. We also know hard times come to us all, and we have resources to assist in keeping families in safe warm homes, utility assistance, food baskets, emergency assistance and Holiday assistance.
