The Salvation Army is a worldwide religious and charitable organization, motivated by the love of God and concern for the needs of humanity. The Army’s tradition of helping those in need began more than 150 years ago. Members of The Salvation Army serve the poor and needy in over 125 countries. Nationally, we have over 62,000 employees and over 3 million volunteers.
The Salvation Army was founded with the basic social services principles of taking care of the physical and emotional needs of the hungry and homeless and remains an outward visible expression of the Army’s strong religious principles, as described in our Mission Statement.
In addition, new programs that address contemporary needs have been established. Among these are disaster relief services, child care centers, summer camps, holiday assistance, services for the aging, veterans programs, shelters for women and children, family and career counseling, vocational training, correctional services, and substance abuse rehabilitation.
The Salvation Army of Fountain Square is part of the city of Indianapolis in the Indiana Division. Within the Indiana Division there are twenty-six Corps Community Centers for worship and service, which are the basic units of The Salvation Army, and various specialized centers, including shelters, child care facilities and Service Centers. The functions of each corps include religious and social services which are adapted to local needs.
