The Salvation Army of San Antonio (Nonprofit / Christian)

The Salvation Army is known for helping those in need. The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Our programs address critical needs across our community. Many of these programs operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

For 130 years The Salvation Army has served the San Antonio community through eliminating food insecurity and offering shelter for men, women, and families requiring emergency housing resulting from difficult life circumstances or natural disasters. Our Permanent Supportive and Rapid Rehousing programs have contributed to the priority of decreasing the Chronic Homeless population. The Salvation Army Homelessness Prevention programs offer additional rental; utility; and food pantry assistance. Aligning with the local commitment to reduce Veteran homelessness, various supportive services are available for Veterans and their families. Ensuring that Seniors remain active participants in the community, programs are available at several locations to encourage adequate nutrition; wellness; arts/culture and socialization activities. The Peacock Boys and Girls Club serves children with after-school care; out of school summer programs; and camp experiences. All our services are provided in a compassionate and nurturing environment to restore hope and dignity.

  • Social Distancing: If you have needs for groceries or other household items, please contact us. We will direct you to the nearest resource location that can meet your needs.
  • Prayer Requests: We desire to lift you and your family up in prayer. We have a team of people committed to praying for you. Please give us your prayer requests and know that we will pray for you consistently during this time.
  • Life Navigation Needs: If you are in crisis and need housing, rehabilitation or other emergency services, we can connect you with a resource that can help you.
  • Spiritual and Emotional Care: If you need someone to talk to, let us know! Drop us a line, and we will have a caring friend call you to share a few words of encouragement.
  • Activities to Do at Home: Here are a few activities to help you pass the time while at home. We hope these activities can create some happy memories and that we can be a part of bringing your family closer together.

The ARC is a holistic rehabilitation center comprised of religious activities, work therapy, educational classes (spiritual, emotional, financial, life skills, and addiction) as well as recreational therapy. Also work with community resources to assist our participants with any medical needs they may have.

Every potential participant undergoes a comprehensive intake interview to ensure the ARC program is the best possible match for them. If the interview process determines it’s not, we’ll make every effort to refer them to a program that will be.

A long-term commitment of at least six months is required so patterns of poor decision-making can be broken and replaced with positive life choices – changes that will help them become productive citizens of their community.

Free.

Community Counselors help people who are uninsured, whose existing coverage does not provide mental health services benefits, are low-income and lack the money to pay for counseling services, or who would not receive treatment any other way. Counseling services are provided by trained, licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and licensed marriage and family counselors. Sessions are private and conducted in a safe and familiar environment such as churches and community centers.

The first meeting with a counselor is free. A modest fee based on a sliding fee scale is collected for each follow-up session; however, no one is denied service because they cannot pay.

An appointment must be scheduled in advance.
