About Us

Guided by faith in God and love for all people, The Salvation Army has served the physical and spiritual needs of humankind since 1865, today we continue this mission in over 100 countries.

The Salvation Army has always seen people through intense difficulty while gently directing the healing with a strong spiritual component. This is why the foster care and adoption process lends itself so well to the Salvation Army's mission and character.  As a foster parent or adoptive parent, you can expect to receive the same care and concern from The Salvation Army throughout your experience as a foster or adoptive family with our program.

Our agency offers the highest quality service to the families and children that we care for, as such, our Allentown and Harleysville offices of Children's Services received 100% compliance for our Annual Department of Human Services 2016 Inspection, an accomplishment achieved by only about 5% of agencies in the state of Pennsylvania.
