Need Assistance?

Poverty is a cyclical state that often requires support to escape. The Salvation Army sees local individuals and families who struggle with this cycle first-hand. Their challenges may be a result of events that were out of their control or by simply always feeling a step behind.

Our mission has served those in poverty since 1865. We know how best to identify a person's root causes of poverty and begin guiding them towards self-sufficiency.
