Description


The Salvation Army is acclaimed worldwide for its broad humanitarian service and outreach. Its history as a religious and charitable organization dates back to 1865, when it was founded by William Booth to minister to the homeless in Victorian England. Booth's compassion for society's outcasts sparked a spiritual and social revolution. To this day, the organization still upholds the code and doctrine formalized by its founder. Houston welcomed The Salvation Army in 1889 and has nurtured its growth and caring spirit for over 100 years. During that time, an expanding network of dedicated officers, staff and volunteers has embraced the sick and lonely, cared for the poor, mentored our youth and provided compassionate emergency response in times of disaster.
