The Salvation Army-Recovery & Services

The Salvation Army continues to serve communities located in Southeast Michigan. The past year has brought many challenges including pausing of programs.  We received incredible support from the community.  People in communities we serve figured out a way to help without jeopardizing their safety or the safety of others.

As we look at the year before us, we continue to anticipate a need for assisting those who are still out of work, are battling the after affects of having COVID-19, or taking care of someone who is ill or recovering.  Rent moratoriums are due to expire and we are seeing an increase in demand for services related to those trying to stay in their homes.

Food insecurity is still a major concern in Southeast Michigan.  Every day The Salvation Army battles hunger, homelessness and hopelessness.  The following are final service statistics related to food and shelter through the end of fiscal year 2020:

2.5 Million-Meals served

580,000-Nights of shelter provided

The above statistics are staggering. Based on the generosity of our supporters, we were able to battle through the pandemic and continue to serve the most vulnerable population AND keep them safe. 

Recently, The Salvation Army collaborated with the State of Michigan to distribute vaccines through our mobile truck units in the neighborhoods of Detroit.  Stopping in various neighborhoods and offering vaccines to those in their home settings provided relief for those who do not have transportation, were reluctant to be receive the vaccine and needed questions to be answered in the comfort of their own environment.  The Associated Press covered this service, as it was the first of its kind. 

The ongoing battle to fight poverty will continue and The Salvation Army will remain on the front lines ready to serve.  Where there is need, we will be there.  Thank you for supporting our mission, Thank you on behalf of those we serve.
