The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Whether it's embracing the homeless, uplifting the abused or abandoned, training and mentoring the disadvantaged, providing character building programs for youth, or assisting the displaced or elderly, The Salvation Army's goal remains the same: serving the most people, meeting the most needs, DOING THE MOST GOOD!
Whether you contribute financially, donate goods, give your time, or support us through social media, with your help, The Salvation Army's Greater Hartford Area Services can continue to reach out to individuals and families to offer a hand-up, not a hand-out. Please contact us if interested in supporting our efforts or if you are in need of assistance.

We provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal for Thanksgiving and an Italian meal for Christmas. At The Salvation Army we deliver over 1,500 holiday meals to Greater Hartford’s elderly population. We invite individuals and small groups to assist in serving, packaging, delivery, and/or clean up. This year the meals will be served cold, to make sure that all of our elderly friends are kept safe from any food borne illnesses.
