We Fight Poverty With Love

The Salvation Army alleviates the symptoms of poverty, then works to address the root issues that cause it.

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. This holistic approach helps create sustainable change in millions of lives, every single day.
