Who We Are Image


We are dedicated to Serving Others in Northwest Ohio. The Salvation Army is people called to serve. We are a religious and social service organization.  As a branch of the Christian church dedicated to the never-ending battle against the twin enemies of sin and despair, our organization is a holistic ministry to body, mind and soul. The Salvation Army seeks to improve the physical environment, provide material needs and lead people to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Salvation Army is a global organization, however, The Salvation Army is also local. As a faith-based organization, The Salvation Army's message is based on the Bible and our mission is to meet human needs without discrimination. As a local organization The Salvation Army works every day within Ohio communities to provide tangible assistance through programs with the help of a dedicated staff and committed volunteers. Our programs are not generic (in that one size fits all) but are designed to be flexible in order to provide the right assistance at the right time for the right people. The Salvation Army provides basic needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter. Beyond those basic needs, The Salvation Army invests its time in the human spirit by offering counseling, educational programs, recovery/support programs, and spiritual support for those willing to accept it.

The Salvation Army of Northwest Ohio is unique in that it has offices in multiple areas across Northwest Ohio making us easily accessible to those in need.
