What We Do

The Salvation Army helps people overcome challenging circumstances so that they can live quality, productive lives by giving them practical tools and basic necessities. Our areas of service include providing disaster relief, offering rehabilitation and work programs to men with addiction, and transitional shelter-to-housing programs for single women and young mothers (Center of Hope).

We also hold the only charter to operate Boys & Girls Clubs in Mecklenburg and Union counties, offering a safe place for children ages 6 to 18 to grow and learn. We are a part of the Christian faith and this faith motivates us to serve all with compassion and dignity.
