The Salvation Army is dedicated to caring for the poor, feeding the hungry, caring for the elderly and educating our youth. Wholistic service is the goal - to meet physical, social, academic, emotional and spiritual needs of families and individuals. We provide help for today by meeting the most basic of human needs and hope for tomorrow through educational and life-skills programming.

Our programs exist to serve one another as commanded by the Word of God. We believe in holistic ministry (body, mind and soul) and we believe in the transformation of lives.
