We serve the Paterson Community Image

We serve the Paterson Community

We exist to meet human needs wherever, whenever, and however we can through programs that serve the mind, body, and soul.

Where do we serve?

The programs that we offer address the needs that are most present in Passaic County. These include services such as food pantry, pastoral care, and youth ministries. We serve individuals and families in need residing in Bellair, Elmwood Park, Fairlawn, Haledon, Hawthorne, Little Falls, Mountain View, North Haledon, Paterson, Prospect Park, Totowa, Wayne, and West Paterson.

The Salvation Army feeds an average of 156,000 every single day in the U.S.

In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, our programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. This approach focuses on meeting the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of each person and helps move many from hungry to fully healed.

The Salvation Army meets the needs of the Paterson community through:

Worship Services and Sunday School

The Salvation Army in Paterson offers worship services every Sunday. Due to COVID-19 we are currently holding our holiness meeting at 10 AM virtually through Facebook Live. Sunday school has been temporarily suspended due to the pandemic.

We also offer pastoral care throughout the week by appointment only. Call (973) 790-4817 to schedule an appointment.
