 HOW CAN YOU BE INVOLVED?

Partners in Service


Advisory organization members are concerned men and women who voluntarily use their professional skills and knowledge of the community to make a practical difference for their neighbors, strengthening The Salvation Army's ability to serve.

With commitment to excellence they dedicate themselves to increasing public awareness of The Salvation Army's purpose and work; recruiting other volunteers and giving hands-on assistance for specific activities such as holiday dinners, hospital visitation and disaster relief. They provide advice and guidance in areas such as budgeting, overseeing large-scale capital campaigns, creating outreach services, public relations and fundraising, management and personnel development, and building improvement and maintenance. They also interpret local culture, trends and needs to assist the Army in developing new ministries or modifying existing programs. Their commitment to serving others unites them with like-minded professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds. This makes advisory organization members vital partners in Salvation Army ministry.

Contact your local Salvation Army program for more information.

Structures of Service

Like Salvation Army programs, advisory organizations take various forms, each making a unique contribution. All share the common goal of bringing together service-minded citizens who lend their energy, enthusiasm and expertise to support and promote Salvation Army services.

Advisory Board: Influential community members organized to assist all Salvation Army programs and facilitates within specific geographic boundaries, usually a city, metropolitan area or county. It is the parent body of other advisory organizations within that geographic area.

Advisory Council: Concerned individuals who give advice to a specific Salvation Army program or institution, such as an adult rehabilitation center, homeless shelter or social service center.
