We fight poverty with love

By providing programs that serve the body, mind, and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and address the root issues. 

46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.

Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.

We are here to feed, shelter, assist and equip the poor.

Poverty is so often the result of - and the catalyst for - chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance - first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.

Poverty doesn't have to be permanent. The Salvation Army helps those in need to overcome poverty through a variety of programs.

Meal Assistance
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head.

Materials Assistance
We help struggling families and individuals avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by  covering the cost of necessary items such as clothing, furniture, and hygiene items.. This assistance lessens the strain on a family's or individual's finances and allows them to utilize their income to cover expenses such as rent or utilities.

Seasonal Assistance
During certain times of the year there is assistance available to meet a specific seasonally based need. Seasonal assistance can consist of help with school supplies for the beginning of the school year, Winter Coat giveaway, a community Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes, and toys for children in need at Christmas.
