Our mission empowers local youth

Children and young adults of all ages have a home to grow at The Salvation Army.
Read below to see the services we provide for kids in our communities

Need Assistance?

The Heartland Division provides a variety of programs to children from all backgrounds. These services create a safe place for local youth to play and learn in a supervised, constructive environment.

Local municipalities can sometimes struggle with funding extracurricular youth programs and that is why The Salvation Army works to keep these opportunities available to our communities. Our mission stands to offer a place for kids to come and grow alongside their neighbors in creative ways, without any the barriers to entry or discrimination.

Our Youth Services & Programs

Music & Creative Arts

The Salvation Army's empowerment of youth across the Heartland Division often comes from a place of creativity and freedom! 

The divisional Youth Department, and other dedicated staff members, come together to provide children and young adults with the opportunity to explore their own creativity. This may take shape in the form of after school music programs and creative theater youth groups; or, it may be seen through seasonal services such as creative arts camp and youth retreats

The impact of these services are clear as The Salvation Army sees children grow in discipline, self confidence and even academic performance.

After School Assistance

Many of the Heartland Division's local Salvation Army units offer valuable after school programming. These services can provide homework assistance, snacks, academic guidance and much more. 

Children who are enrolled in these programs get one-on-one attention in a secure and loving environment. Parents can trust in our mission to foster true advancement of their child's learning alongside others their own age. Altogether, this builds a solid base of social and educational skills for our local youth.

Summer Camp

The Salvation Army has a saying: Camp Changes Lives. The group of staff and volunteers who help during the summer at Camp Eagle Crest see this impact first hand.

Every year children from all across the Heartland Division participate in camp retreats that are full of different youth programs and activities. They leave with friends, memories and lessons that are carried forward for the rest of their lives. From recreation to skills-based games, camp truly is a life changing part of our mission!
