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.
Those who are 55 years of age and older represent the fastest growing age category within our nation today. Given the immeasurable value this population has contributed to our people and our country, it is only fitting that The Salvation Army is dedicated to serving the needs of this aging in ways that support their continued dignity and honor.
Other assistance programs, such as Salvation Army shelters or food programs, endeavor to help seniors meet their basic needs and have access to increased physical and emotional security. Additionally, various social programs, groups, or clubs and special events help seniors to maintain their enthusiasm and vitality.
The Salvation Army Southern New England Division also offers a summer retreat opportunity for seniors at the beautiful CONNRI Lodge and Conference Center in Ashford, CT. You can find out more about this offering by clicking here.
