By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.
46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.
Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.
Poverty is so often the result of and the catalyst for chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.
Social Service Assistance
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice between heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head. This program assists individuals and families with monthly food boxes/clothing and furniture as the needs arise.
