The Salvation Army Helps Make Families Whole

 

The Salvation Army helps Families:

After-School programs

We bring children into an environment where the learning continues long after the bell rings. The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs to give kids a safe place to play, do homework, and pursue extracurricular goals. During a time where they could otherwise be at risk, we open our doors to kids for growth in literacy, sports, arts, and music skills.

Pathway of Hope

Are you concerned about the basics that you need for you and your family? You can take the first step today by joining the Pathway of Hope to help you navigate the challenges to a better future. To get there, a caseworker will work with you to design a plan around your individual goals, needs and strengths.

William Booth Legal Aid Clinic

The WBLAC exists to address the legal problems and provide high quality legal services at no cost to those living at or below poverty guidelines. The Clinic services individuals, families and U.S. Military Veterans in need and educates clients with regard to their legal rights and obligations while seeking to eliminate legal problems as obstacles that may prevent them from reaching their full potential. The ultimate goal is to empower responsible citizens who have broken the cycle of poverty and dependency.

Summer Camps

For many kids, summer camp is the first time they will see the world outside of their neighborhood. Each year, we enable thousands of children from low-income families to enjoy fresh air, exercise and new friendships through our annual summer camp programs. This camping experience is more than just a few days away from home. Here, children learn new skills and self-reliance. Trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them mature and grow. Camp Activities include learning to swim, arts and crafts, music development, and sports.

Through hundreds of after school programs, we provide kids a safe place to play, and in many cases, the option for sports and music programs they might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. Through summer camps, we enable children to see the world in a fresh new way. And, through our community centers, we provide families with the physical, emotional and spiritual support they need to foster better, brighter futures.
