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.


The Salvation Army Miami Area Command is home to The Red Shield Lodge homeless shelter. The shelter has around 260 beds, laundry, common areas for residents, a computer room, a Health Resource Center and a newly renovated dining room where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. Each year The Salvation Army Miami Area Command serves over 4,800 hot meals. Residents do not pay for anything when they are here. Each resident has a case manager who helps them reach their goals in order to achieve independence. The shelter houses a food pantry that is open to anyone in the community and serves over 200 families per week. In addition, there are Corps in various areas of Miami that act as Community Centers and Churches for their respective areas. Each Corps has Youth Programs, food pantries and spiritual services.
