The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Covid-19

By Christina Gallop | Project Leader

Since March of 2020, The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit has responded to the urgent community needs created by the pandemic. From a distribution of over 21,000 food boxes in the spring of 2020 to rent/mortgage assistance, to financial support for funeral services, we have stepped up to serve a population of that in previous years had not needed our help.  In addition to badly needed resources the demand for pastoral care was massive. 

The Salvation army through innovation and collaboration, was able to mobilize our Bed & Bread Canteens, delivering vaccinations to neighborhoods across the City of Detroit.  We were the first and only program to be able to do this due to our bandwidth and capacity to serve.  Residents were able to receive the vaccine and information.  Many of the residents did not have access to transportation and as a result, were apprehensive and uninformed.  This program allowed them to make an informed decision for their health and well being. 

2022 will be focused on keeping individuals and families in their homes.  With moratoriums being lifted, the demand for rent/mortgage assistance has dramatically increased.  We anticipate a large number of residents seeking help with this crisis.  

The Salvation Army is committed to providing overnight shelter for Metro Detroit residents who have no where to go. Our Shelter locations include Detroit, Monroe and Macomb County, as well as an emergency 90-day shelter in Warren. These locations of service are the difference between someone being on the street, or having a meal and roof over their head, especially in the frigid winter months.

When you Give....HOPE MARCHES ON...

We will not give up the fight against hunger, poverty and homelessness.
