 Mission Statement 

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.

Who We Are

At its heart, The Salvation Army is a church whose mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. We love God and serve others because we want others to come to know God’s love too.  Every program we offer is rooted in our passion for serving God by serving the lost, the vulnerable, the needy, the poor, the hurting, the helpless, and the hopeless.

Learn About How We Help

Every day we help thousands of people throughout the Northeast. We offer hundreds of unique, local programs that are designed to meet specific local needs. While we offer a vast array of programs and services, everything we do can be condensed into 12 simple service categories.
