Salvation Army Kroc Community Center


The Salvation Army’s social service programs vary slightly with local and regional needs. We believe that helping others creates hope for a better tomorrow. Through a one-on-one interview, The Salvation Army caseworker aims to identify the often multiple factors contributing to the household’s emergency situation and provide other forms of assistance, referrals, budget counseling, and emotional support as necessary. This holistic approach of meeting need wherever it is found allows The Salvation Army to help in a way that reduces the likelihood of future crisis, and, in many cases, prevents homelessness.


The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation.
