The Salvation Army is dedicated to meeting human needs in His name without discrimination. We are committed to doing all we can to demonstrate God's love in the communities we serve by providing a listening ear, a hot meal and a hand up to those in need.

The latest census data confirms there are more than 22,000 homeless men, women and children living in Hillsborough County alone. Thousands more families struggle to make ends meet, and often must make the impossible decision between putting food on the table or gas in the car.

The Salvation Army's social service programs encompass a wide range of safety net, rehabilitation and relief programs to help individuals and families overcome daunting obstacles. The Salvation Army's social work approach has always been one of empowerment, enabling those in need to change their life's circumstances and overcome challenges that stand in their way. Services include children's services, food for the hungry, emergency and transitional housing for the homeless, emergency assistance with rent and mortgage payments, self-sufficiency training, character-building programs, counseling and case management, nursing home visits, services for the elderly, referral services and much more.
