Not only is The Salvation Army committed to providing service locally here in Southern California, it is an organization with representation in 128 different countries worldwide. International work runs the spectrum of health services and community development, to disaster relief and the prevention of global sexual trafficking. Work in local communities mirrors the core services provided internationally, yet allows for the flexibility needed to truly connect with those most in need of support. This autonomy is one reason that The Salvation Army has been around for over 153 years and has evolved into a social service provider with an unmatched scope and breadth.
The Salvation Army is one of the largest social care providers in the world, with social programs running in almost every country in which we operate. These social programs extend to providing aid to victims of natural and manmade disasters, as well as places of human conflict. The Salvation Army is there to provide compassion and practical support to those in real and sudden need, and minister to the aching heart and the weary soul.
