Who we Are

A Network of Volunteers Throughout Eastern Pennsylvania 

The Salvation Army provides services to every zip code in the United States, and works 365 days a year to fulfill its promise to do the most good for the most people in the most need. The Salvation Army does not have a corps community center in every town and village throughout the Division, but we do have faithful volunteers hard at work in these communities. Organized as “Service Units” in 34 counties, devoted volunteers provided emergency assistance with essential needs to more that 35,000 people last year. 

They wear no uniform . . . They are a volunteer militia . . . They are the Army behind the Army.

There are more than 163 active Service Units across Eastern Pennsylvania under the direction of the Service Extension Department.


How we help

The extension of service offered by The Salvation Army Service Unit volunteers is important to the communities they serve and indeed makes an impact to those in need.  Service Unit volunteers provided assistance to more than 48,000 people last year.  

The SU volunteers provide emergency financial assistance to individuals and families in financial crisis.  Assistance may be provided for food, clothing, furniture, rent and utilities. Seasonal assistance may include summer camp for children, back to school backpacks and supplies and Christmas food baskets and gifts for children. Our volunteers receive specialized training to prepare them to work collaboratively with local agencies to utilize funding entrusted to them to assist those in need in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
