The Salvation Army’s Social Services encompass a wide range of programs to help individuals and families overcome daunting obstacles.
Motivated by the love of God, as a leader in Christian faith-based human services, The Salvation Army is committed to serve the whole person, body, mind and spirit, with integrity, respect and dignity.
Through innovative programming, advocacy and valuable partnerships, The Outreach Team has been able to connect people with the right resources and support services to get dozens of them out of desperate situations and into a home of their own.
The Salvation Army Outreach Team is the recipient of an Abbotsford Business Excellence Award, and an additional nomination, in the Social Responsibility category for their work with the homeless in our community.

Together we can make a difference, one life at a time.
“Many people in this world face seemingly insurmountable physical and psychological challenges. Their souls are empty and their hearts are broken. Their world is a daily battle with drugs, loneliness, mental illness, abuse, and rejection. Every individual who enters the doors of The Salvation Army is treated with respect and dignity. They are not judged on what they have done, how unkempt they appear, or how incoherently they speak. When disheartened men and women knock on the doors of The Salvation Army, they retain a glimmer of hope that someone cares. The door opens. They are greeted warmly. For a fleeting moment, they think maybe, just maybe, this time it will be different!”
Mr. Tom Skidmore, former Chairman of the
Vancouver Circle of Caring Campaign
