Who we Are

The Salvation Army's mission spread across the country, reaching the streets of Fond du Lac in 1890. The organization works hand in hand with the Fond du Lac community to operate the county’s largest food pantry, it’s only warming shelter and a wealth of year-round and seasonal social service, crisis prevention and self-sufficiency programs.

Our Local Leadership

Majors Johnathan and Kim Welch

Majors Jon and Kim Welch arrived at The Salvation Army Fond du Lac Corps and began their new assignment as our corps officers and pastors on June 27, 2018. For more than 30 years, the two have served The Salvation Army; prior to their arrival in Fond du Lac, the Welchs served the Salvation Army in Porter County (Valparaiso, IN) for almost 11 years.  How blessed are we to have all their experience and compassion  helping us continue "Doing the Most Good" in Fond du Lac!

Take a brief look into our History

The way we help has changed over the course of our 130 years. We’ve adjusted our focus many times to respond to community need, for as long as needed, most notably:

  • Opening and operating Kindercare in 1973-2008 to offer quality, affordable childcare;
  • Beginning FDL Operation Back to School in 1989 to offer free school supplies (now Back to School FDL)
  • Creating the Brown Bag Lunch program in 1993 to offer free lunches in summer (the program distributed over 13,000 lunches in 2019)
  • Partnering with St. Agnes Hospital to begin free healthcare through The Samaritan Free Health Clinic in 1993
  • Opening The Salvation Army Warming Shelter in 2015 to offer free winter shelter for homeless adults
