Throughout Rhode Island’s 39 cities and towns, The Salvation Army operates numerous programs that seek to meet the needs of its neighbors, including: mobile community response, senior programs, academic enrichment, pastoral counseling, social development, recreational programs for children ages 6 to 12, emergency food and material assistance programs, an Adult Rehabilitation Center, holiday basket and toy distribution programs, and Corps Community Centers, which provide faith-based family and youth programs for their local communities. The Salvation Army's Service Extension program also operates in suburban and rural locations where no Corps of The Salvation Army are maintained. These Service Units provide comprehensive emergency assistance for people in these communities.
