We're committed to meeting basic needs

By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.

Food Pantry & Personal Needs Hygiene Pantry

How we help overcome Poverty: Food & Hygiene Pantry

Poverty is often the result of, and catalyst for, chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids, and various forms of abuse. These interconnected issues continue year after year and generation after generation. That's why we work to meet the needs of the whole person through short- and long-term assistance. Through programs that serve the body, mind and soul, we alleviate the symptoms of poverty, then work to address the root issues that cause it.

Other Food Related Programs Include:

 

Community Kitchen

Poverty is often defined by painful choices, such as heating vs. eating. The decision between paying bills and feeding your family is an impossible position to be in. That's why we provide free meals Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to anyone in need, as well as a Sunday night meal at 5:30 PM. We also provide holiday meals over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays. 

Pathway of Hope

The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.
