The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
With God’s help we will be beacons of light guiding others to the saving grace of God our Father, witness to the world using our talents and resources, accept the responsibility of providing for the spiritual and physical needs of the world, both near and far, and disciple all believers for spiritual growth and ministry.

Available assistance includes an emergency food pantry; housing and shelter programs; community center programs for children and senior citizens; daily feeding programs; emergency disaster services; worship and spiritual counseling; Thanksgiving, Christmas and Back-to-School assistance and much more.
