Programs & Services

Meeting basic needs of all who come seeking help

With 'heart to God and hand to man', The Salvation Army strives to meet the basic needs of all who come seeking help. Taking immediate care of the basic human needs of food, shelter, clothing and safety is an important first step in the development of a more positive and permanent life change in the people we help.

It is essential to note that at no time the participation in spiritual activities be required as a condition for receiving needed services. All service given in the name of Jesus for meeting human needs and caring for hurting persons is in and of itself valued and is a spiritual ministry.

Advisory Board
You Can Help Make a Difference



The Advisory Board stands in service to the mission of The Salvation Army and is an essential component to its success.  The purpose of the Advisory Board is to be a liaison between The Salvation Army and the community at large. 

The board represents The Salvation Army to the community through advocacy, access, and fundraising.  The Board also ratifies all major initiatives and monitors operations in light of community realities, property matters, budgets, and related items.

The Board stays informed through its regular meetings, and through its committees and Advisory Councils. Executive and AdHoc committees meet intermittently to take up specific issues, and make recommendations.

The development committee of the Board is directly responsible for fundraising alongside our Development staff.  Our Board members help identify new prospective funders, they cultivate relationships, serve as natural partners, make introductions for Development staff to meet with new prospective donors, and they solicit gifts for our annual campaign, benefit events and any special initiatives and/or seasonal programs.  They help leverage significant dollars each year.
