Do you have a company or business that can help us!

We house 30 veterans and their families on our campus at 908 Yuma St. On this Campus we have a half court that kids use, but its in DESPERATE need of love. The court needs to be re-sealed and painted and lots of TLC, would you and/or your company help us out.

Its hard to find a grant that will cover the cost to repair the court, but it looks so sad. Would you and/or your company be willing to give this project the love it so desperately needs.

We are looking for groups/businesses/single volunteers that could help us repair the court as its not in our daily budget to do so. We have more families than ever in our Veteran Transitional Housing with more children than we have seen in years.

Help us give these children a safe place to shoot hoops!

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 needs in His name without discrimination.

Description

Soon after beginning his ministerial career in England in 1852, William Booth abandoned the concept of the traditional church pulpit in favor of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ directly to the people. He preached to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute. When fellow clergymen disagreed with his unconventional approach, he and his wife Catherine withdrew from the church to train evangelists throughout England. They returned to the East End of London in 1865, where many followers joined their fight for the souls of lost men and women. Within 10 years, their organization, operating under the name The Christian Mission, had over 1,000 volunteers and evangelists. Thieves, prostitutes, gamblers, and drunkards were among their first converts to Christianity. And soon, those converts were also preaching and singing in the streets as living testimonies to the power of God. When Booth read a printer's proof of the 1878 Christian Mission annual report, he noticed the statement, "The Christian Mission is a volunteer army." Crossing out the words "volunteer army," he penned in "Salvation Army. From that point onward, converts became soldiers of Christ and were known then, as now, as Salvationists. They launched an offensive throughout the British Isles that, in spite of violence and persecution, converted 250,000 Christians between 1881 and 1885. Today, The Salvation Army is active in virtually every corner of the world and serves in 133 countries, offering the message of God’s healing and hope to all those in need.
