Mission Statement

Supported by our 7 San Diego County Family Thrift Stores, The San Diego Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center is committed to restoring individuals who are in the grip of addiction, back to their loved ones through a comprehensive program that includes counseling, work therapy and spiritual development. We empower beneficiaries with the resources needed to develop life skills and a personal relationship with God, giving them hope and a second chance at life.


Volunteers are accepted and needed at our 7 Family Thrift Stores throughout the county (Downtown, Pt. Loma, SDSU College Area, Chula Vista, Santee, Poway, Escondido) which are the source of funding for our Adult Rehabilitation Center. We accept Volunteers of their own accord or those that need to complete community service hours. Once volunteers complete an application, a simple background check is performed before work can begin. Applications can be completed in all of our stores: SAStores.org and additional questions about volunteering email: Volunteers.ARCSD@usw.salvationarmy.org
