No one should grow old alone

No one should grow old alone.

The Salvation Army welcomes seniors each day across our division.


The Salvation Army provides a wide range
of elder care and support options.

The Salvation Army passionately invites senior citizens into relationships with others through our many senior centers and eldercare programs. To help combat the loneliness, depression, and loss of independence that often accompany old age, we provide group dining experiences, coordinate activities, visit the homebound, and offer residential assistance for older adults in need of a senior living community.

To find out about senior programming in your area, contact The Salvation Army nearest you.

Help us make a difference.

Happy, healthy seniors make our communities stronger!
When you give to your local Salvation Army, you help provide resources for our seniors against isolation and depression.

Community

Each Salvation Army corps community center serves its local senior citizen community in unique ways to meet specific needs. A wide variety of program offerings - ranging from clubs and classes to groups and gatherings - empowers older adults to learn, laugh, and thrive among like-minded friends.

Food Programs

From sit-down programs that provide nutritious, hot meals and valuable human interaction, to food box distribution and home visits, we help ensure that seniors do not go hungry.

Activities

The Salvation Army works to stimulate the minds and bodies of older adults via educational opportunities,
low-impact exercise, dances, lunches, fellowship, and countless other "young at heart" activities.
