Local programs and services include:

This is a free, year-long meal program offered five days a week, Monday - Friday from Noon to 1 p.m. at The Salvation Army Kitchen, 700 S. Riverfront Dr. Free bread and bakery items are also distributed during this time. This program is available to anyone in need of fellowship and a nutritious meal.

Annually thousands meals are served, most of which are the only meal people in need receive for the day.

From November through March, the day shelter provides temporary, safe and warm accommodations for men, women and children daily. The shelter is open seven days a week from 8AM – 6PM. Homeless guests receive a hot shower, light lunch, and access to laundry facilities. Fellowship is also available.

Maxfield Place is a permanent, supportive housing program for adults with a diagnosed disability who are considered chronically homeless.

There are 10 individual apartments for single adults which include a bed, full kitchen and bathroom. Residents cook and prepare their own meals and do their own laundry.

Maxfield Place is staffed 24 hours a day and employs a case worker, who helps residents develop a long-term plan and collaborates with other service providers for referrals. Since 2006, The Salvation Army has worked with the Office of Housing and Urban Development to support the program.

When disasters strike, our volunteer team provides emotional support and relief to the affected communities. We respond to floods, fires, tornadoes and any other type of disaster by deploying a mobile kitchen fully loaded with meals and supplies for families, emergency crews and others on the scene.

We provide supportive assistance to individuals and families in an emergency situation in Blue Earth County and North Mankato and can help identify other community resources which may provide additional help. Services we offer may include help with ID and birth certificates, clothing, household furnishings, transportation, and financial assistance for medical, rent and utility bills. Click here to complete an intake form or rental assistance form.

All are welcome to attend our spiritual services throughout the week. On Sunday, join us for Sunday School at 10:00 a.m. and a worship service at 11 a.m. Sunday evening Bible study starts at 6 p.m.

The women’s ministry meets Tuesday at 10 a.m. Transportation is available.

The Bundle Me Warm program offers new and gently used coats and winter outer apparel to children and adults. This free program is available to everyone in need. Please call main line for more information.

We provide a variety of services to make the holidays brighter.

We also supply low-income families with Christmas food baskets, so they can have a well-rounded Christmas dinner at home.
