8. Community Aid Agencies
8.1 SalvationArmy Community Support Services
The Salvation Army provides many services that support and strengthen families and
respond when families are unable to cope. Over 30,000 families are assisted each year.
The assistance provided is different from area to area, depending on the social
programs and financial resources available in your location.
The normal process is that a Family Support worker will schedule a private interview to
discuss your situation and needs, and then make an assessment of the types of services
they can provide. Everything discussed in the interview stays within the wall of the
office. This interview must be conducted in person and cannot be done over the phone
or via email.
