In Upstate New York, The Salvation Army provides basic emergency assistance to residents in every zip code. The Salvation Army’s Service Unit program operates in suburban and rural communities where no Salvation Army facility is present. It is a program designed to provide comprehensive emergency assistance for individuals and families in its community.
There are 166 Service Unit committees in the Empire State Division of Upstate New York. These units are made up of over 600 volunteers. Last year, over 45,300 people in Upstate New York were serviced by Salvation Army Service Units.
Service Unit aid is intended to be temporary and varies according to the community. Service unit volunteers work in collaboration with area community agencies. Families or individuals needing long term assistance are referred to governmental social service departments or other programs within their local community or county. Salvation Army Service Units' ability to serve is based on capacity and resources made available by local kettle campaigns and volunteers. Resources will vary from unit to unit.
