In keeping with The Salvation Army mission to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to promote the alleviation of human suffering, center programs range from Sunday worship services, Bible Studies and Vacation Bible School to crisis alleviation, case management, feeding programs, and transitional housing programs. Other typical programs include activities for senior citizens, character-building recreational programs, leadership and life skills development, and much more.
Youth programs are a staple of our centers, too. Whether they are offered as an educational resource after-school or as a safe haven for families with working parents, all Salvation Army youth programs have an underlying goal to provide character development and spiritual growth for children and adolescents. Mentoring programs help enrich academic activities and build confidence within the children. While programs for at-risk youth not only provide a refuge from the streets, but also offer a positive outlook and encouragement so they are able to break the cycle of destructive lifestyles.
Salvation Army corps community centers enrich the quality of life and provide fellowship among members of the community, allowing individuals from different walks of life to find opportunities to learn, worship, and serve together. Our neighborhood focused activities and programs are motivated by our love of God and the desire to serve others, creating a spirit that makes everyone feel right at home.
The heart of The Army is found in its spirtual ministry. From here, we reach out to heal wounds of the soul, to share the love of Jesus Christ and to proclaim God's promise of salvation.
