Programs That Help

Dedicated to enriching the lives of the people we serve, The Salvation Army of Greater Houston's programs and services enable us to truly make a difference every day. No place is that mission more apparent than at our six Corps/Community Centers, our six residential complexes, our two stand-alone social services offices, our Upward Bound college preparation program, and in all the communities we serve in and around the Greater Houston region. These facilities deliver our brand of Doing The Most Good commitment to the various neighborhoods and communities we serve in Fort Bend, Harris and Montgomery counties.


Social Services
In trying times many turn to The Salvation Army for assistance in paying their utility bills and rent.

Homeless Shelter Facilities
Providing a safe haven to those without one, The Salvation Army has five transitional living and shelter facilities where we meet the basic needs of homeless men, women and families.

Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation
When an individual makes the decision to change their life and overcome their drug and/or alcohol addiction, many have found the faith-based rehabilitation offered by The Salvation Army a true salvation.

Youth Programs and Boys & Girls Club
At our six Corps/Community Centers throughout the region children are offered a safe environment in which to explore and maximize their potential after school and during the summer.

Upward Bound & College Assistance
At the Boys and Girls Club at Sharpstown High School, hundreds of first generation, low-income families are seeing a member of their family graduate from high school and go on to college for the very first time.

Senior Program
Be it in the privacy of their own homes, at one of our six Corps/Community Centers, or at one of our two independent-living, residential apartment-buildings for senior citizens, the elderly in our community have found a safe haven at The Salvation Army.

Disaster Relief & Emergency Response
When a natural disaster or sudden catastrophe causes social and personal chaos, The Salvation Army moves into action - often minutes after the tragedy has occurred - to meet the needs of the victims.

Christmas Assistance
The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.

Angel Tree Program
Our Angel Tree Program is one of the largest and longest-standing holiday gift-giving initiatives in the local region.

Red Kettle Campaign
The Red Kettle Campaign is our annual fundraiser. Through the support received by the community, we are able to continue providing services in the greater Houston area all year round.
