The Salvation Army is first and foremost a religious institution, where each week members of communities throughout Indiana gather at Salvation Army corps community centers and centers of service to worship on Sunday. Worship programs are also conducted throughout the week.

As the world’s largest non-profit charity organization, The Salvation Army meets the humanitarian needs of people in need, guiding them to physical, mental and spiritual betterment. Throughout the state of Indiana, The Salvation Army exists as a catalyst in helping people change their lives for the better. Each day successful and proven Salvation Army programs assist the homeless, addicted, poor, afflicted, elderly, and less-fortunate youth in our community.

Social Service programs provide financial assistance such as rent/mortgage assistance, utilities (electric/water/heat), food, clothing, transportation, and other basic and unique needs to families or individuals in crisis.
