It is a special person who will give of themselves to make life better for another. William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, was such a person. He and his wife Catherine dedicated their lives to helping individuals in London, England in the 1800s. Those who were considered the outcasts of society such as the homeless, the hungry, the poor, and destitute found themselves accepted and comforted by the founder.
Today in Southern New England, there is a special group of people who carry on William Booth's work in Connecticut and Rhode Island. These individuals who support the vision of the founder have formed an elite group known as The William Booth Society.
Like the founder of The Salvation Army, William Booth Society members see the potential of helping others who are often out of options. Their combined resources help the Army to continue to meet the ever-changing needs of those in their care.
Members of The William Booth Society annually make a monetary donation of $1,000 or more to The Salvation Army. Memberships are renewed each year through each donor's continued demonstration of support.
Please consider joining fellow visionaries who have committed to helping others in Southern New England through the William Booth Society.
