The Salvation Army provides services to every zip code in the United States, and works 365 day a year to fulfill its promise to do the most good for the most people in the most need. While the basic service unit of The Salvation Army is the corps community center, where no established centers exist The Salvation Army Service Extension programs are available.
There are more than 260 active Salvation Army Service Units across Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware. These units work with volunteer committees of local citizens to identify and meet community needs, and to network with statewide Salvation Army programs. Volunteers receive specialized training to prepare them to work collaboratively with local agencies to utilize funding entrusted to them to assist others in need in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Services range from providing for basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter, to medical and dental assistance, to sending children to summer camp, or even supplying gasoline. Clients also receive seasonal assistance from special back-to-school and Christmas partner programs. Salvation Army Service Units provide individual and emergency services according to general policies and the decisions of their local committees.
The extension of the service offered by The Salvation Army Service Units is important to the communities they serve and indeed makes an impact to those in need.
