to help families in our community.

The Salvation Army gives children a safe haven
to complete homework, play sports, learn music,
gain new skills, and nurture their talents. 

By the end of 4th grade, African-American, Latino and low-income students are two years behind grade level.

By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.

How we help empower youth in our community:

After-School Programs
The Salvation Army provides after-school programming to give youth and teens a safe place to complete homework, learn new skills, and relax with their friends. 

Character-Building / Mentoring Programs
Weekly scout-style and mentoring programs are designed to support youth and teens as they navigate their world and grow into adulthood. Topics addressed can include bullying, peer pressure, making a positive impact on the community, family life and more.

Recreational, Sports and Fitness Programs
Sports, recreation and fitness programs help kids learn the value of health, physical activity and teamwork. We offer several recreation and sports programs for children and families.

Camp
Wonderland Camp provides week-long summer camp options for youth, teens and seniors with a different theme each week. We also host day camp during school breaks and the summer.
