Meeting needs in Jesus' name without discrimination

Salvation Army program participant

More than just a hot meal, a warm coat or a helping hand, The Salvation Army is about changing people’s lives.

Every person who walks through our doors is someone special, a person with potential and a God-given opportunity for their life. We give people the opportunity to belong, to grow and to succeed, and we do it every day.

With this in mind, we labor with compassion and dedication to help people have a sense of belonging, to realize their potential, to help them grow beyond their circumstances toward personal success.

The Manchester Salvation Army is located in the heart of the city, an ideal location for offering hope in the midst of hopelessness and empowering families to improve the overall quality of their lives.
