Salvation Army Launches 2013/2014 Annual Review


Hope happens every day at The Salvation Army. A warm bed for someone out in the cold. A bag of nutritious food for a hungry family. Counselling to help someone break the chains of addiction.

Last year, The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda helped more than 1.8 million people rebuild broken homes and lives. That’s one person every 20 seconds.

As the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country, The Salvation Army assists people with close to 50 different programs and services provided from coast to coast.

As you read this year’s annual review you will find that the Army is a safe haven for the homeless, encouragement for people battling mental-health and developmental issues, strength for new parents, comfort for the hungry, and more. Our annual review video highlights the work of The Salvation Army. 

Also included in the review are facts and figures that reflect the ongoing demand for Salvation Army services, and our financial reports that affirm our commitment to transparency and accountability.

The needs this year were, and remain, numerous and wide-ranging. The Salvation Army’s programs and services meet people right where they are, providing practical and relevant help, empowering them to overcome their specific challenges.

The critical work of The Salvation Army in restoring hope and dignity to men, women and children would not be possible without the help and support of our volunteers and generous donors. Together we can better understand and meet needs, ensuring that all vulnerable people have a chance to make their lives a little better.

When you donate to The Salvation Army you are giving hope and restoring dignity to the marginalized and overlooked people in your community.
