Mission Statement

Inspired by our Christian mission, we offer the resources and support to lift up our neighbors in crisis. As the largest non-profit provider of emergency shelter in Central Texas, annually we serve more than 12,500 men, women and children with shelter, addiction rehabilitation, clothing, meals, holiday support, and direct client assistance. Each year we successfully case manage hundreds from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.


The Salvation Army’s national brand strategy and distinct identifiable message is "Doing The Most Good". Moreover, it is a promise the organization makes to its contributors, clients, associates, officers and employees. The idea of Doing the Most Good originated from Evangeline Booth, daughter of William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army.

She said:

"There is no reward equal to that of doing the most good to the most people in the most need."

The Salvation Army pledges to Do The Most Good with contributions of money, time and resources, evidenced in that 82 cents of every dollar donated are directly allocated to services that assist people in need.

We are Doing The Most Good with your contributions of time, money and resources.

I chose "maybe" because I haven't had to stay at the "Sally" in Austin, Texas for over 15 years. I don't know what it's like now but I know what it was like 15 years ago. When I found myself homeless in Austin back in 1992 they had just completed a new six million dollar center and I had occasion to stay there many times. It was fairly regimented, endless lines. You stood in a long line to get in, another long line to get your meal, then you took a shower and stood in another long line for your bedclothes and a bed. The barracks-style room you slept in was always noisy until late in the evening. They woke you early (around 5:30am or so) and you're back standing in line for breakfast. Oatmeal and bread. Then, out the door, no matter what the weather. Good luck finding a job.
