Many Americans are familiar with The Salvation Army's thrift stores which fund our well-known drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. And our iconic red kettles have become a symbol of the Christmas season and the spirit of giving.
But in hundreds of communities across the Western United States, The Salvation Army also operates programs and services which are designed to meet human need in Christ's name, alleviate human suffering, and promote wholeness by addressing the spiritual, social,emotional, psychological and physical well-being of those served.
The Salvation Army's social service programs vary slightly with local and regional needs. For instance, there are programs and services for homeless people, victims of domestic violence, at-risk kids, and so much more.
