Chaplains are called to critical incidents when police determine emotional and spiritual care is needed
The Salvation Army Chaplaincy Program is a partnership between The Salvation Army Milwaukee County and the Milwaukee Police Department. Salvation Army Chaplains provide emotional and spiritual care and support to those that have experienced a traumatic incident. Through our two volunteer rosters of chaplains (community & emergency), we seek to build relationships, engage with faith-based organizations, help build sustainable neighborhoods, identify root causes of trauma, and provide assistance which empowers individuals to make changes towards healing in their lives.
The Salvation Army Chaplaincy Program is comprised of volunteers from all over the greater Milwaukee area. Our 55 chaplains represent 19 denominations from 44 different congregations. They are laypersons/clergy and come from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Our Chaplains are called to critical incidents when police determine emotional and spiritual care is needed, including (but not limited to):
