Emergency Disaster Services
The Salvation Army's Disaster Services program began 100 years ago in response to a hurricane that devastated Galveston, Texas and has grown into a nation-wide network involving thousands of volunteers and trained personnel. In following with our holistic ministry, we provide services that meet the immediate as well as long term physical, emotional and spiritual needs of disaster victims.
These services include: food, shelter, grief counseling and financial assistance. Our disaster response teams are often the first to appear on the scene of a tragedy and the last to leave, making certain that the needs of all have been met.
