The Salvation Army is known for helping those in need. 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 programs address critical needs across our community. Many of these programs operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
For 130 years The Salvation Army has served the San Antonio community through eliminating food insecurity and offering shelter for men, women, and families requiring emergency housing resulting from difficult life circumstances or natural disasters. Our Permanent Supportive and Rapid Rehousing programs have contributed to the priority of decreasing the Chronic Homeless population. The Salvation Army Homelessness Prevention programs offer additional rental; utility; and food pantry assistance. Aligning with the local commitment to reduce Veteran homelessness, various supportive services are available for Veterans and their families. Ensuring that Seniors remain active participants in the community, programs are available at several locations to encourage adequate nutrition; wellness; arts/culture and socialization activities. The Peacock Boys and Girls Club serves children with after-school care; out of school summer programs; and camp experiences. All our services are provided in a compassionate and nurturing environment to restore hope and dignity.
Our pantry operates in partnership with the San Antonio Food Bank serving families in need.

Here at The Salvation Army, we truly value our volunteers and realize they are a gift from God. Our volunteers enable us to function effectively and efficiently in everything we do from feeding the homeless a hot meal, tutoring students in our after-school program, attending to disasters as they strike, to manning an Angel Tree booth during Christmas.
We know that volunteers choose to donate their time and talents to us, and that does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. We are here to encourage our volunteers and provide them with the tools and training they need and support them at all times.

Also work with community resources to assist our participants with any medical needs they may have.
