Back To Work Programs

Steady employment is the core to long-term stability. Many locations have services that will help individuals find a job, including resume preparation and job searching assistance. We want to help you find a job that not only pays the bills, but utilizes your God-given skills.

Family Stores & Clothing

Buying new clothing and household items can be a drain on an already tight budget. Salvation Army Family Stores sell these items, new or gently used, at a reduced cost. We can supply store vouchers for single adults who are disaster survivors or are experiencing financial strain. Families or individuals may also qualify for household vouchers.

Seasonal Assistance

The Salvation Army is well known for assistance provided during the Christmas season. The Angel Tree program provides gifts for children and seniors who may otherwise not receive any gifts at Christmas while the Red Kettle Campaign and Salvation Army bell ringers are now a fixture of the Holiday season in the USA. Additionally, summer camps and day camp programs provide endless opportunities for young people during their long summer break from school.
