The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the Universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Our Vision

To have the Greater Washington, DC area be a place where people of all ages live in safe and sustainable communities, in which differences are respected, and people are empowered to learn, work, and worship in freedom.

Doing the most good since 1865

The Salvation Army stands for hope. When every light is extinguished, and every other star has gone dim, this one gleam shines steadily and clearly out in the darkened sky: “If I could only get to The Salvation Army, they will do something for me.”
