Greater Hartford Women’s Auxiliary

The Women's Auxiliary is a volunteer arm of the work and ministry of The Salvation Army. Through the support of its dedicated membership, practical assistance is given to Army programs through fundraising and hands-on service.

In 1969, Mrs. Brigadier Richard E. Holz sat next to Mrs. Rhoda Haggard, wife of Advisory Board member Paul Haggard, and shared her dream. She felt compelled to form a Women’s Auxiliary in the Hartford area. Mrs. Holz was acquainted with the supportive work of Auxiliaries in other areas of the country and envisioned this type of wonderful organization on a local level.

Rhoda Haggard contacted two friends, Mrs. Arthur Lumsden and Mrs. Otto Neuman, and the rest is history. An initial luncheon was held, which hosted nineteen women who were active in various aspects of life and community in the Hartford area. Following numerous telephone calls and meetings, the group was officially chartered on October 28, 1969 with the induction of 68 dedicated volunteer members. Officers were elected, goals were set and the Greater Hartford Women’s Auxilliary of The Salvation Army was born. The early motto was "Together for Others," and that theme is still present in the Auxiliary’s ministry today.
