Everyone Needs an Army

The Salvation Army is a faith-driven organization shaped by its Christian beliefs and provides a wide- range of social services to anyone who requires assistance.

In Canada, most of us have a strong network of family and friends that we can easily call on to support us if we need help. But every day, millions of Canadians who fight poverty, homelessness, addictions and even natural disaster, literally have no one to turn to.  People in crisis or who need a hand up need to know they are not alone, and that’s why The Salvation Army exists.

As the largest, non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country, The Salvation Army has the privilege of standing up for people who would otherwise have to battle hardship on their own. Last year, The Salvation Army assisted over 1.7 million people in 400 communities across Canada by giving them the tools needed to rebuild dignity and renew hope.  

In this report you will find how The Salvation Army is:

  • combatting hunger,
  • providing educational opportunities for pregnant and parenting youth,
  • supporting people affected by disaster,
  • empowering families, and more.

Our ability to restore hope is possible because of the generous support of our donors, volunteers and other community stakeholders. Your help enables us to provide quality programs and services, not just in the moment, but for the long term so people know someone is on their side in their time of need. For that, I am truly grateful.

May God bless you,
