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 in Pasadena serves the San Gabriel community a variety of ways following their founders initial desire to bring "soup, soap, and salvation" to the streets of London. Their Pasadena location includes a five-day-a-week food pantry and social service referrals, 75 apartments for low-income seniors, after-school programming in partnership with the Pasadena Police Activities League, a vibrant place of worship, a gymnasium hosting indoor soccer and basketball leagues, and rentable community meeting spaces. Nearby, the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center serves 125 individuals in a six-month, cost-free residential addiction recovery program. And of course, we have a thrift store.
The Salvation Army has had a presence in Pasadena for over 131 years.
"Our mission is straightforward: to meet the needs of our neighbors, whatever that need might be," says Capt. Terry Masango, who leads The Salvation Army’s efforts in Pasadena.
