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 works to address the root issues that cause it.

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 dedicated to feeding, sheltering, assisting and equipping 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.

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.

Utility Assistance
We help struggling families and individuals avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by supplementing their income with utility payments. This assistance often becomes the difference between shelter and eviction, between maintaining honest work and selling drugs or services for money, and between keeping kids in one place and moving them out of their home and onto the streets.
