Injustice - A violation of basic human rights, or equality.

By this definition, we all pass a form of injustice every day, but may not realize it. The Salvation Army continually recognizes these moments to better work with those who have their basic rights threatened or taken away. We do this through our veteran's assistance, domestic violence shelters, community awareness partnerships, and much more.

The Heartland Division serves equality for all

The Salvation Army programs working across Central Illinois and Eastern Iowa bring dignity and support in many ways, but the fight for justice is constant. We need your support to continually create opportunites and resources for those facing injustice to turn to.

Your support creates a path to justice.

Community Awareness Initiatives

Addiction, domestic violence, and mental illness are common issues that prevent many in our communities from living with the same rights we take for granted. You can be a part of changing this with The Salvation Army. We proudly partner with local coalitions to raise public awareness about the many forms of injustice we live around everyday, and offer ways to help this issue.

A legacy of justice

For over 200 years, The Salvation Army has been advocating for the rights of all people and providing services and support that reflect this mission. Our commitment to correcting injustice and giving victims a way out of inequality is a part of who we are and why we do what we do. This will never change because it is God?s word to love all and we work in His light to give everyone a loving place to turn in the darkest times.
