The Salvation Army is an action-oriented Christian church and social service organization that was founded in London in 1865.
Our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs without discrimination in His name.
We care for the poor, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, love the unlovable, and befriend the friendless.
We've been called "the most efficient and effective organization in the U.S.," and year after year the Army is named "America's favorite charity."
Our national average is to use 83 cents of every dollar donated in direct services for people in need. As a result, people believe that when they contribute to The Salvation Army, they're giving where it will do the most good.
