Ways You Can Help Those Around You

Many of us feel the desire to bring hope and healing to those hurting in our communities but often we don't know how to start. Here are some of the ways you can partner with The Salvation Army to do the most good in your local community.

How The Salvation Army is Different

We Evolve to Fill the Gaps

We work to understand the needs of each community in which we serve and use our resources in ways that fill gaps without duplicating existing services. Our programs evolve where the community needs them, so we may shine our light as a youth center in one community but as an emergency shelter in another.

We Change Lives, Not Days

We look at the whole person and partner with them to provide a pathway out of poverty by focusing on their capabilities and empowering them to overcome barriers. We offer help for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a person to create a longer-lasting change in their own life and to break the cycle of crisis in their family tree.

We Know We Can't Do It Alone

We've been at it long enough to know that we're only as strong as the relationships we build. That's why we build partnerships, not walls, with other organizations in the communities where we serve. And, it's why we need people like you to join us in the fight for good by giving your time, talent and resources so we can continue serving others.

The Stories We Love to Tell

When someone who has struggled for a season finally closes that chapter of their life, they can feel it in their soul and a peace resides on their face for the first time in years. It's a privilege for us to see that first smile. Words can hardly describe it, but that's what we try to convey in the stories that we share with you. Here are just a few of these stories we love to tell.

“I worked hard to get on housing lists but I hit barriers because of my past. I was very un-housable.”

Lauren moved into a Salvation Army permanent supporting housing unit on April 1, 2021, and has been making positive steps ever since. She has been sober for four years and now has all three of her kids living with her under one roof.

“Today I have a happy, healthy quality of life—better than I ever thought possible,” Lauren said. “Each day, I work hard to make good new habits. I have the confidence to tackle any barriers thrown my way.”
