The Salvation Army began its mission in Licking County in 1884, just four years after the organization started in the United States. Our mission - to alleviate hunger, homelessness, and poverty - remains the same for the modern services we deliver. We’re Doing the Most Good for those in need in our community.
In 2010 we provided:
• 7,5 82 nights of lodging for homeless individuals
• 83,047 meals including 44,472 for children through our Summer Food Program
• 20,346 items of clothing
• holiday assistance for 1,242 families totaling 3,087 children through our Christmas Cheer program
• rental and utility assistance for 406 households
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
