Women's Auxiliaries

Join us in raising public awareness of The Salvation Army, to facilitate services to the needy, and help raise money for services in our community.

The Salvation Army in Greater Cincinnati benefits daily from the year-round dedication of Women's Auxiliary groups who make our mission and ministry possible with their time, talent and treasure. Over 300 women in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are involved and often we have multi-generations and families serving to help The Salvation Army's programs and services.

The purpose of the Auxiliary is to raise public awareness of The Salvation Army, to facilitate services to the needy, and to strengthen the financial base of the local Salvation Army. Membership is open to all women in the community. Members are encouraged to participate and support the programs of the Auxiliary.

In Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, the following Women's Auxiliary groups support The Salvation Army's work in the community:

The Salvation Army Camp Auxiliary was founded in 1956 to assist in the development of Camp SWONEKY. The camp took its name from the initials of the Salvation Army division- Southwest Ohio & Northeast Kentucky.

SWONEKY is a residential camp primarily serving the underprivileged children of southwest Ohio and Northeast Kentucky. The purpose of The Salvation Army camping is to serve the physical, social, and spiritual needs of each camper.

The Salvation Army Toy Shop Auxiliary was started in 1956 to support and assist The Salvation Army with its toy distribution efforts at Christmas.  The auxiliary furnishes bears, dolls, doll clothes, doll quilts, quilts for newborns, and specially selected books to give to the parents of under-privileged children.

The Kenton County Auxiliary was started in 1990 (then called Kenton County Auxiliary)by former members of the Salvation Army Booth Hospital Auxiliary. After the Booth Hospital ceased operations, the auxiliary changed its focus to assisting the various needs of the Salvation Army in Northern Kentucky.The Auxiliary raises funds to help support The Salvation Army After-School program and Summer Day Camp at the Covington Community Center of The Salvation Army. The auxiliary funding also helps many Northern Kentucky children to attend Camp SWONEKY.

"Our mission, through the resolute efforts of its dedicated volunteers, is to provide assistance for the various needs of The Salvation Army of Northern Kentucky. Through fundraising activities, the Auxiliary concentrates on providing financial support to benefit the after-school programs and summer camping opportunities made possible by The Salvation Army for the underprivileged children in our community."

The ARC Auxiliary (Adult Rehabilitation Center) was started in 1956 to support the ARC Center in Norwood.  This is a residential program for men whose lives are in chaos due to drugs, alcohol or other addictions and is dedicated to helping men who have had difficulty coping with life to return to a normal, happy, well balanced way of living.
