Disaster Services Volunteer


Are you interested in learning more about being an Emergency & Disaster Services Volunteer?

With a rise in major natural disasters in recent years, people have an increased desire to help but few know how. We are hosting a series of training webinars to explain the role volunteer organizations play in a major disaster and to understand what it means to volunteer effectively during a disaster response. The trainings can be taken as standalone trainings or a series.

  • Responding to Cultural Needs - Part 2 : Thursday 3/11/21 @ 4pm - 5:30pm

Visit The Salvation Army's Volunteer Site to Register (copy and paste this link https://volunteer.usawest.org/OpportunityDetail.aspx?ID=5857).
Register for the "shift" for the webinar(s) you wish to attend. The webinars will be hosted via Zoom. Participants must have access to a mobile device or computer and the internet. Registered participants will be emailed a Zoom link prior to the training.

By completing this or any future trainings, you are not committing to being deployed during a disaster, nor is The Salvation Army implying that you will be deployed. The trainings are intended to both educate those interested in learning more about volunteering during a disaster, and equip volunteers so they are better prepared for deployment if the need or opportunity rises.

If you have any questions please email Golden State Division Volunteer Manager, Melissa Doppler, or call her at 415-553-3528.

Mission Statement

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human need in His name without discrimination.


The Salvation Army was established in London in 1865, and since 1883 has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area, offering practical support, spiritual comfort and a critical safety net to people in need. The safety net is funded in part by donations from the Red Kettle Campaign which started in San Francisco in 1891. Nearly 600,000 San Franciscans receive assistance from the Army annually through a range of social services; clothing and shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, opportunities for underprivileged children, alcohol rehabilitation, transitional housing, nutritional and housing support for seniors and relief for disaster survivors. For every dollar donated to The Salvation Army, 82 cents is used to support those services in the 16 facilities throughout San Francisco and South San Francisco communities.
