Founded almost 140 years ago by William Booth, The Salvation Army is a religious and social service organization, a branch of the Christian Church dedicated to the battle against sin and despair.

There is an integrated ministry to body, mind and soul. The Army seeks not only to improve the physical environment and provide for material needs, but also to reveal the power of Christ's love. Its social services programs assist children, the elderly, families, and those battling addiction.

The Salvation Army Sierra del Mar Division is part of The Western Territory, one of four territories in USA.

Divisions are comprised of programs based on community needs and corps community centers for worship and service. The corps is the basic service unit of The Salvation Army. To find your local Salvation Army or to learn more about the Army's ministry in your area, click here.
