Salvation Army

About Us

The Salvation Army has been proud to call Denver home since 1887. For the past 129 years, we have been a constant source of support for our neighbors in-need. We are grateful to be a part of this vibrant ever-growing community who have enabled us to stay true to our mission of meeting human needs without discrimination.

In 2017 alone, around 163,000 individuals received help from The Salvation Army in Denver. Each of our locations offers services tailored to meet the unique needs in that community. Programs include: youth programs, financial assistance, senior programming, Christmas assistance, emergency disaster relief, shelter for the homeless and substance abuse rehabilitation.
