Meeting human need in His name without discrimination

With 'heart to God and hand to man', The Salvation Army strives to meet the basic needs of all who come seeking help. Taking immediate care of the basic human needs of food, shelter, clothing and safety is an important first step in the development of a more positive and permanent life change in the people we help.

Participation in spiritual activities is optional and is never required as a condition for receiving needed services. All services are given in the name of Jesus for meeting human needs and caring for hurting persons.
