Emergency Assistance includes help with clothing, food, rent, prescriptions and utilities. They will assist each family or individual and if necessary, will refer them to other agencies to make sure that all of their needs are met.
Respect and dignity are two words in action throughout the case management process. Case workers are professional and qualified to serve the thousands of individuals and families that come through our doors each year. They are the first face and the first experience the client has with The Salvation Army. Their ultimate goal is to build trust and establish confidence with the client by listening and working together to meet their individual needs.
As part of emergency assistance, cooperative arrangements exist with prison, probation and parole officers in a program of crime prevention. Many prisoners are paroled to the direct custody of The Salvation Army.
Correctional Services are offered to those convicted of minor offenses and those individuals accept placement in community service programs at corps community centers and institutions as an alternative to incarceration. Emergency services are also available to crime survivors.
