As our Disaster Emergency Services Slogan states: The Salvation Army is combating disasters with Acts of God.

The human response to a disaster is impressive and it expresses humankind's best values. Sympathy, concern, and personal sacrifice are not only visible but they are expected of Salvation Army Volunteers, Employees, and Officers. The Salvation Army traditionally responds to disasters of any origin (human or natural) by becoming the hands of those that could not be there at ground zero. The tradition started in 1900 with Disaster Relief Efforts in Galveston after the city was hit by a hurricane.
