The Salvation Army is an International Christian Organization that began its work in Canada in 1882, and has grown to become one of the largest non-governmental direct providers of Social Services in the country. The Salvation Army gives hope and support to vulnerable people today and everyday in 400 communities across Canada and more than 130 countries across the world. The Salvation Army provides practical assistance for children and families, often tending to the basic necessities of life, providing shelter for homeless people and rehabilitation for people who have lost control of their lives to an addiction or other circumstance.
At our Belleville location, we strive to uphold the same values and mandate. We are long established in this community, and have a long-standing reputation to offer services in a compassionate, dignified and safe manner.
Poverty is often the result of, and catalyst for, constant struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, institutional voids, and various forms of abuse. These interconnected issues continue year after year and generation after generation. That’s why we work to meet the needs of the whole person through short- and long-term assistance. Through programs that serve the body, mind and soul, we alleviate the symptoms of poverty, then work to address the root issues that cause it. This holistic approach helps create sustainable change in the lives of many, every single day.
