Who We Are

We are dedicated to "Doing the Most Good"
In Indiana.

Who we Are

The Salvation Army Indiana Division operates 28 Worship and Service Centers in addition to many Salvation Army thrift stores throughout the state of Indiana. The Salvation Army throughout Indiana is centrally managed by the Salvation Army Indiana Division headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Our Mission:

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its mission is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

The People We Serve:

Each year, thanks to generous donations, The Salvation Army serves more than 25 million Americans – or one person every second – from a variety of backgrounds. People who come to us for assistance will be served according to their need and our capacity to help – regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
