We fight poverty with love

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.


Social Services Programs

Poverty is often the result of, and catalyst for, chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids, and various forms of abuse. These interconnected issues continue year after year and generation after generation. That's why we work to meet the needs of the whole person through short- and long-term assistance. Through programs that serve the body, mind and soul, we alleviate the symptoms of poverty, then work to address the root issues that cause it. These programs are provided because the Army believes in Matthew 25: “…as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me”.


We assist with the following:

  • Food and Personal Care Pantry
  • Clothing & household vouchers
  • Utility (Gas & Electric) Bills
  • Pathway of Hope
  • Referrals to local agencies
  • Summer overnight camps in Leonard, MI
