The Salvation Army Family Services Department has been serving the Southern California community for more than fifty years. Our goal is to provide clients with resources that help them transition into stable housing and increased income levels. More specifically, services provided to low-income families and individuals include: emergency food support, lodging, clothing, transportation and rental assistance.
Each Family Services Department houses a food pantry that serves their local community. Many of these pantries partner with other nonprofit organizations and food wholesalers for large-scale community distributions. These distributions occur seasonally, and increase proportionally to the need in a community. In addition, The Family Services Department also hosts the following seasonal programs: utility payment assistance, Easter basket distribution, Mother's Day baskets, back to school supplies, job fairs, Christmas toy & food distributions, Angel Tree, and Adopt-A-Family.
