The Salvation Army's mission is "to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination."
As part of a large international organization, this broad based mission allows "the Army" - which has a presence in every country in the United States, as well as 111 countries around the world - the freedom to be innovative, flexible, strategic and responsive on the local level.
The Salvation Army, in Broward County since 1926, has the autonomy to assess the specialized and changing needs of our community and to develop strategies and programs to meet those needs in creative, cost effective ways.
The Salvation Army invests in our community by investing in individuals. Our goal is to help each person we assist to reach their highest level of independence. This is done by facilitating the growth of the whole person through holistic programs that educate, rehabilitate, empower and provide support.
Helping people make lasting positive changes in their lives transforms and strengthens their families, children and futures and in turn, the future of our community.

These are the most common images people have of The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army was founded by William Booth, a Methodist minister, in London in 1865 and provides services to people in over 100 countries around the world.
The basic social services developed by William Booth have remained an outward visible expression of the Army's strong religious principles. In addition, new programs that address contemporary needs have been established. Among these are disaster relief services, child care centers, summer camps, holiday assistance, services for the aging, AIDS education and residential services, medical facilities, shelters for battered women and children, family and career counseling, vocational training, correction services, and substance abuse rehabilitation. Each year, more than 30 million people receive services provided by The Salvation Army.
