Annual Report

Who We Are

The Salvation Army is made up of thousands of officers, soldiers, adherents, employees, volunteers, and other individuals all working together to holistically meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of those less fortunate. Our organization is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. The Salvation Army St. Louis is the administrative unit that provides services to people in need throughout Missouri and Southern Illinois. 

Mission Statement
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message 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.

Racial Equity Lens
By utilizing a racial equity lens, The Salvation Army aims to (a) provide a common vocabulary and protocol for evaluating policies, programs, practices and decisions for racial equity and (b) product policies, programs, practices and decisions which result in more equitable outcomes. 

What We Do & How We Help
People often ask why The Salvation Army offers so many different services and programs. The programs and services differ in order to meet the unique needs of the people in the communities we serve. We take a holistic approach to Doing the Most Good where there is the most need without discrimination, whether it be disaster relief, emergency assistance, substance abuse rehabilitation, or educational programs for children.
