Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty.
The Salvation Army operates a variety of programs for children in need in our community.
Fifty-seven percent of children between 6 and 17 years old participate in at least one after-school extracurricular activity.
Children were more likely to participate in sports (35%) than clubs or lessons like music, dance and language.
Our first priority is to meet basic human needs, but we recognize the importance of programs that go beyond the basics of food, shelter, clothing and safety. In addition to meeting basic needs, The Salvation Army strives to provide programs that will help children thrive during crucial developmental years - from after school programs and summer camps, to childcare and toys at Christmas.
