As the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in Canada, The Salvation Army is driven by our desire to extend compassion and generosity to anyone who needs it.
In our 2012-2013 Annual Review, you will find stories that reflect the extent of our impact on communities and families. Stories such as Tanya, a single mom of twins who is finding ways to cope with the responsibilities she has to bear on her own, and Kathleen, a survivor of the Alberta floods who continues to rebuild.
This year, demand for our services has remained strong and statistics reflect this in the number of people seeking our assistance. While helping people with immediate needs is important, we also support people in addressing underlying issues that have created the crisis.
The Salvation Army believes that financial accountability and transparency are essential to our success. Our financial statements demonstrate the care we show in utilizing the gifts donors entrust to us. We ensure the maximum possible return on investment, which enables us to provide the best possible programs and services to the people we serve.
Thank you for your support. You have proven once again that Canadians care for each other. The Salvation Army is grateful that you have chosen to be part of our family.
