Direct Care

The Salvation Army

Fall River,MA


The Salvation Army is a religious and social service organization, a branch of the Christian church dedicated to the never-ending battle against the twin enemies of sin and despair. Our mission is holistic because we find that no single factor accounts for the challenges faced by those we serve. The Salvation Army seeks to improve the physical environment, provide for material needs and, as people desire to receive it, we seek to introduce people to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
