Mission: 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.

About Us

The Salvation Army is an international, faith-based charitable organization with a simple mission: to help those in need without discrimination.

Headquartered in London—from a building at the foot of the Millennium Bridge—The Salvation Army serves in 118 countries and has an extensive presence in the United States. Adhering to a quasi-militaristic structure, The Salvation Army in the United States is divided into four territories, which are further subdivided into divisions. The Salvation Army Greater New York Division serves the five boroughs of New York City, Long Island, and nine counties in Hudson Valley.

There are overarching themes that run throughout The Salvation Army’s faith-based humanitarian efforts in the United States and beyond, such as relief for victims of disasters, alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs, food, and shelter. The programs and services that each country, territory, or division offers differ drastically depending on the populations they serve. For instance, programs in a third-world country might include a medical clinic or midwifery school, whereas a program in an urban region of the United States might attempt to remedy a lack of extracurricular education for youth by starting a basketball program or a music class.

Of the over 140 programs The Greater New York Division offers, many are operated out of 39 corps community centers (corps) overseen by Corps Officers—men and women who have undergone a two year course in residence at a Salvation Army college where they study theology and field practice courses such as sociology and administration. Corps Officers, who have titles according to rank such as Captain or Major, are ordained ministers as well as community center directors. From building maintenance to deciding whether to start an ESL program or a choir—the Corps Officer is responsible for interpreting the needs of each community. Once needs are determined, Officers work with over 2,000 Salvation Army Greater New York employees (development and finance staff, social workers, etc.) and over 22,000 volunteers to create appropriate programming.

In addition to Corps-based programs, The Salvation Army Greater New York Division administers a wide variety of social services which are largely made possible through contracts with government agencies such as the New York City Department of Homeless Services and the New York City Administration for Children’s Services.

To make a donation, go online, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY or text "STORM" to 80888 to make a $10 donation. $10 will feed a disaster survivor for one day.

Disaster Program

The Salvation Army responds to disasters in the forty-eight counties of Upstate New York through Emergency Disaster Services (EDS). EDS is under the supervision of the General Secretary of the Salvation Army’s Divisional Headquarters located in Syracuse, NY.

EDS provides the following services to disaster victims: limited financial assistance; spiritual, family, and crisis counseling for both victims and first-responders; health and welfare inquiries of disaster victims; emergency radio communication (SATERN); temporary shelter in Salvation Army facilities; mass congregate meals; mobile feeding to disaster victims and first-responders; and donated goods management. Salvation Army mobile kitchens / canteens are located at Albany, Olean, Buffalo, Elmira, Jamestown, Oneonta, and Rochester, NY. Small EDS trailers are located at Corning, Jamestown and Lockport, NY.

From its inception, The Salvation Army has relied heavily on volunteers who support its programs. Often referred to as “the army behind The Army," volunteers play a crucial role in The Salvation Army's ability to provide quality social services for the entire community.

Volunteers are valuable assets in The Salvation Army's efforts to meet the changing needs of our world. Through the skills and experience they bring to The Army, volunteers make significant contributions to society by positively impacting the lives of those they assist. Salvation Army volunteers change lives, uplift families and support communities throughout the Greater New York area everyday.



The Salvation Army in Greater New York has many locations over the 14 counties we serve:

* Operations are run from Divisional Headquarters at 120 West 14th Street in Manhattan. The Divisional Commander, Major Guy D. Klemanski, and his staff of officers and non-Army professionals see to the health of the division through financial management, fundraising, communications and more.
* There are 39 corps community centers: places for worship, community life, program and assistance. Each center is run by one or more Salvation Army officers — also called pastors or corps officers — assisted by other Salvation Army staff and volunteers. The programs at each center are unique to each location. They reflect the needs and richness of the communities they serve.
* The division has county development offices as well in Suffolk County, Nassau County and the Hudson Valley.
* Two residences — The Markle and The Williams — provide housing for women and seniors in New York City.
* Social Services Headquarters is at 132 West 14th Street in Manhattan. From here, social service programs all over the division are supervised.
* Salvation Army Thrift Stores support 7 Adult Rehabilitation Centers in the Greater New York Division.
