We have made it our mission to serve veterans who have served us.
It all began with doughnuts and coffee for soldiers during World War I, and it only grew from there. Today, The Salvation Army offers a range of veteran services, providing comfort, support, and counseling, to thousands of veterans in need each year. We express great gratitude for our country’s bravest men and women by offering a hand and our hearts to those struggling to find their way after coming back home.
The Salvation Army serves hundreds of thousands of Veterans nationwide every year, providing comfort, support, counseling, shelter, and more
We offer a home to those who have protected ours. Whenever a veteran doesn't have any place to go, it's an honor to give them a place to rest their head, a hot meal, help finding employment, and a fresh start.
Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs)
Those who fought to protect us often find themselves battling PTSD and drug and alcohol addiction after returning home. At our ARCs, we offer faith based recovery and work programs in addition to other veteran services to help our country's bravest overcome these struggles and return home to their families.
The Salvation Army is committed to standing beside those who stood up for us by offering a variety of veteran services to meet their needs. Whether it's a phone to call home, wheelchair assistance, large print bibles, or a friendly smile and companionship for the afternoon, we're ready to come to their aid.
