Since 1907 The Salvation Army has been providing life changing, critical services to the people of Winston-Salem and the surrounding area. During those 108 years The Salvation Army has touched the lives of over 2 million residents.

From its early years of providing food, shelter and clothing to the city’s poor, The Winston-Salem Salvation Army has grown and expanded services to those in need.

In 1938, The Salvation Army formed Boys and Girls Clubs, now enriching children’s lives in two locations.

In the mid-1980’s, The Winston-Salem Salvation Army expanded its services to Davie, Yadkin and Stokes Counties, where individuals and families benefit from the Emergency Assistance Program that provides grants for rent and utilities, food, medicine, clothing and emergency lodging.

The Salvation Army now operates the only family shelter in Winston-Salem.

The Salvation Army provides spiritual guidance and instruction through weekly worship services, Bible studies, music instruction, and character-building activities. These services are made available at the Washington Park Corps (services in English), the International Corps (services in Spanish) and the Kernersville Corps (services in Korean).

Under the Joint Command of Majors James and Lois Allison, the Winston-Salem Area Command remains committed to serving those in need in the Twin City now and into the future.
