Last year, The Salvation Army helped 1.9 million people.

Each person we help has an individual story, such as Take (‘taw-kee’), who arrived at a Salvation Army emergency shelter after losing his job, his family and his home.  

“I thought, ‘What is the point of living?’” says Take. “I can’t tell you the relief I felt having a bed to lie down on, a roof over my head and heat. I wanted to cry.”

Thanks to you, and our other donors, volunteers and corporate partners, we are able to help lift people out of poverty, give hope to those impacted by disaster and strengthen communities that are in most need of support.   

In the 2015-2016 Annual Report you will find:

  • facts and figures about your support in action;
  • stories of how your generosity has helped to improve lives;
  • highlights of our accomplishments;
  • and a financial review.

“As we strive to fulfill our mandate of Giving Hope Today, we focus on possibilities, not problems,” says Commissioner Susan McMillan, Territorial Commander. “With your ongoing support and partnership, we can build strong and compassionate communities where everyone has an opportunity to thrive and live out their full potential.”

“Thank you for supporting the mission of The Salvation Army.”
