The Salvation Army has been active in North and South Carolina since 1887 - opening units in Raleigh, NC, Wilmington, NC and Spartanburg, SC in that year. Today, the Army operates hundreds of facilities and services in over 50 "commands" around North and South Carolina. These range from daily character building programs such as the Boys and Girls Clubs and community centers, to providing shelter for families in need of transitional housing, to holding weekly worship services, to providing safe and affordable housing to seniors. So, while you can expect to see us around the community in full force during the holidays, it may surprise where else you may run into a "Salvationist". We're committed to helping in so many aspects of community life and to "Doing the Most Good" with the resources that you entrust us with.
The Salvation Army administers many programs and services designed to restore broken lives, to build healthy relationships, and to develop and encourage people of all ages.
The Salvation Army, across the US, is more than just the bell-ringers that you see at Christmas, more than the family stores that you see around town. We also offer programs such as:
character building programs for youth,
community-building and fellowship for adults,
We are always looking for new ways to get involved in the community life.
