The Salvation Army is an international grassroots organization committed to serving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals in need. We call our approach to providing services Doing the Most Good. Originally founded to serve the poor on the streets of 18th Century London, The Salvation Army is now present in 114 countries and nearly every zip code in the United States. The Salvation Army's reputation as an international humanitarian organization and effective social service provider is best summed up by management expert Peter Drucker who said, "The Salvation Army is by far the most effective organization in the United States."
Many people associate The Salvation Army with Christmas kettles or thrift stores, but The Salvation Army is much more than that. The Salvation Army can be found in over 100 countries around the world, providing much needed help. Closer to home, The Salvation Army has over 51 corps/community centers, and over 50 social service programs in Southern California.
