"Love Beyond"....Circumstance

Above All....Love
Above All....Love

The past couple of years have been the hardest we've faced as a nation, city, neighborhood or even in our homes. As we continue to struggle through the pandemic, civil unrest, and natural disasters that uproot families, we find the courage and strength in love.  

The Salvation Army has remained committed to serving all people throughout the pandemic.  Isolation, fear, job restrictions, lock downs and shortages have caused distress among the most vulnerable population.  "Love Beyond" embraces each person in their time of stress.  This message is a reminder about the financial struggles and uphill battles that millions of Americans continue to face to escape poverty, and the impact that a small act of love can have for someone in need. 

The Salvation Army is uniquely positioned to provide local social services, including food pantries, substance abuse recovery programs, after-school programs, emergency shelter, financial assistance including rent, mortgage, utilities and food each day of the year.  

The Salvation Army of Eastern Michigan serves nearly 1.6 million meals per year and shelters 77,000 annually. In Detroit, child poverty is more than 43% (poverty.umich.edu). There are 8000 homeless individuals in Detroit, and nearly 500,000 are food insecure.  Listed below are just some statistics to show our response in 2021:

  • We served 18,720 gallons of soup
  • 1.1 million pieces of fruit and snacks
  • 182,000 hot dogs
  • 300 gallons of hot chocolate (during the coldest months)

We will continue to serve on the front lines, helping all who come as they face what may be life's toughest challenge.
