 The Salvation Army in Greater Cincinnati


  • The Salvation Army has had a presence in Cincinnati since 1885, serving the needs of the less fortunate in our community for 125 years
  • There are six (6) Community & Worship Centers (Corps) that comprise the Greater Cincinnati service area, including Batavia, The Citadel (Downtown), Center Hill and Westside in Ohio, and Covington and Newport in Kentucky - these Corps are the front-line of the Army's presence, providing social and ministry services to the communities they serve
  • Cincinnati operates within the Southwest Ohio-Northeast Kentucky (SWONEKY) Division, with headquarters in Cincinnati, under the command of Majors Ronald R. and Dorine M. Foreman
  • The SWONEKY Division includes Corps and Service Units throughout southwest Ohio and Northeast Kentucky.  Operations within the Division also include senior residences, such as the Booth Residence in Cincinnati, Adult Rehabilitation Centers, Emergency Disaster Services operations, and Camp SWONEKY, located in Oregonia, OH
  • Our mission is to Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to Meet Human Needs in His Name without Discrimination; Our guiding principle is to "Do the Most Good"

 What The Salvation Army Does in the Community

  • The Salvation Army is a trusted advocate for the poor and needy in Greater Cincinnati, and a good steward of the funds entrusted to its care - locally, 90 cents from every dollar we collect goes directly to the services and programs serving to meet human needs, without discrimination
  • While many are familiar with the red kettles and the bell ringers during the Christmas season, they aren't aware of the extent of services provided by The Salvation Army in using those funds - The Salvation Army in Greater Cincinnati provides:
    • Food, rent, utilities and financial and medical assistance
    • An emergency shelter, and transitional housing
    • A homelessness prevention program, with advocacy for those most vulnerable
    • Counseling services
    • Child care and after-school programs
    • Summer camp
    • Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
    • Emergency disaster services
    • A senior living facility - the Booth Residence
    • Worship and community involvement opportunities
  • Although the red kettle and bell ringers are a staple in the life of the community at Christmastime, The Salvation Army in Greater Cincinnati is active year-round in service to those most in need in the community:
    • At Christmastime, we implement an Adopt-a-Family program, a Toy Shop program and provide emergency financial assistance to the least fortunate in our community
    • In the Summer, The Salvation Army provides recreation and development opportunities for kids and teens at Camp SWONEKY, as well as implementing various improvement projects in the communities we serve
    • And year-round, we are active providing counseling, social services, emergency and transitional housing, child care and after-school programs, emergency disaster services, adult rehabilitation, visitation to the elderly, sick, imprisoned and homebound, and so much more
