We fight poverty with love

By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.

46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.

Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.

We are active in every zip code in America to feed, shelter, assist and equip the poor.

Poverty is so often the result of - and the catalyst for - chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance - first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.

Poverty doesn't have to be permanent. The Salvation Army helps those in need to overcome poverty through a variety of programs.

Meal Assistance
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head.

To receive a Food Box a Proof of Address and ID must be provided.  We serve South Placer County (Roseville, Rocklin, Loomis, Granite Bay, Penryn, Sheridan, Antelope 95843, Orangevale 95663 and Citrus Heights 95621 & 95610)

Roseville Corps Food Box Distribution Schedule

Bill Pay Assistance
We help struggling families and individuals avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by supplementing their income with utility, rent and other vital payments. We provided $80,000 in rent assistance and $18,000 in PG&E assistance in 2016 and plan to eclipse those numbers in 2017.  This assistance often becomes the difference between shelter and eviction, between maintaining honest work and selling drugs or services for money, and between keeping kids in one place and moving them out of their home and onto the streets.

Employment Assistance
As part of our comprehensive approach to helping families and individuals overcome poverty, we offer career coaching, job and interview coaching and resume help to assist those in need secure stable and gainful employment.  We also have appropriate clothes available for interviews.

Stepping Stones
Our doors are open on Fridays, 6 - 8:00 am, for showers.
