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.

Covid-19 Casework Services

Casework services are offered to those who have been impacted by Covid-19 -- who have lost their job or have reduced hours because of the virus.

Aid given to a family which serves our community.

"Today we had the privilege of aiding a social worker and her family. Her husband is a police officer and she works at a case manager with the Department of Child Services. This family experienced a significant pay cut due to the Covid-19 virus and the wife's inability to see clients. They were unable to pay for child care, car payments, and a variety of other bills. We were able to assist with covid funds to make the car payment, day care and Vectren bill. They were over-joyed and extremely grateful for the assistance given.
