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.
