For over a century, The Salvation Army has had the tradition of serving the neediest men, women and children throughout Oregon. The Salvation Army provides service in every county in the state.
Annually, The Salvation Army in Oregon assists over 300,000 people. Some of its services include disaster relief; camp programs for low-income children and seniors; rent, food, utility, medical and transportation assistance; coats for kids; shelter, food, schooling and job assistance for homeless families and survivors of domestic violence.
Unlike many charitable organizations that focus on a particular cause or program, The Salvation Army’s ministry serves the broad needs of all our communities, big and small, and of all those in need, young and old, without discrimination.
The Salvation Army has earned a reputation as the most popular and effective charitable organization in the country. It is praised for the clarity of its mission, innovation and financial stewardship.
