Ridge MeadowsThe Salvation Army has been serving the community of Maple Ridge since 1990. Today The Salvation Army Ridge Meadows Ministries has grown to accommodate a Meal Centre serving over 9000 nutritious meals each month, advocacy and support services, an Emergency Shelter and a Transitional Housing Program helping individuals move toward independence.
Investing in the lives and well being of our youth is of highest priority to us and we offer several programs to ensure that they have a community of support available to them.
Some of the services we offer are Sonia's Cradle Program for babies and toddlers, our School Lunch Bag Program to ensure kids are getting the nutrition they need to learn well, our Back to School Backpack Drive that provides a new back pack full of school supplies to kids who may otherwise go without and our annual sponsoring of approx. 60 kids to attend a wonderful week at beautiful Camp Sunrise on the Sunshine Coast.
We are so very thankful to our community partners who generously support our programs; lives are changed because you care.

Thank you for helping us to continue 'Giving Hope Today' in our community.
Together, we are making a difference in our community!
