How The Salvation Army Can Help?

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurts, pain, or addiction of any kind. It's a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling their life. The purpose of this ministry is to fellowship God's healing power in our lives through the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes of Matthew 5, and Christ-centered 12 steps. The experience allows us to be changed. We open the door by sharing our experiences, victories, and hopes with each other. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving out life problems. 

By using Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from out addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. The freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

COVID 19 Updates

We are monitoring information from public health officials and will continue to provide updates.

The Salvation Army Fox Cities is humble about the people we have helped during COVID-19, and will continue to help.

Our focus has been, and will continue to Do The Most Good, and help those in need without discrimination.

We will be focusing on continuing to love our neighbors by making sure their physical needs are met.

 

As our new normal continues to formulate, YOU are our top priority!

We never shut down programs, rather we ran operations differently to adapt to COVID-19. For example, our

lunch and pantry are a grab and go policy. As we look to getting those programs operating “inside the building” again,

we will be looking at opening in phases.

Phase 1 includes:

 

Safety guidelines and precautions to ensure safety:

 

As we take the proper precautions to ensure everyone’s safety, please call ahead of time if you are unsure and have questions on anything!

We will continue to update you on our reopening phase expectations. Please look for our next email, or website for updates.
