Emergency Disaster Services - Spiritual & Emotional Care

Throughout the duration and aftermath of a disaster, The Salvation Army provides spiritual comfort and emotional support upon request to victims and emergency workers coping with the stress of a catastrophe. Salvation Army counselors may simply offer a "ministry of presence," but often people who know about The Salvation Army as representatives of God may ask for prayer or help from the Bible. Disaster relief and recovery services are provided to all in need without discrimination.

Our emotional & spiritual care team serves throughout four counties: LaSalle, Grundy, Bureau, and Putnam, serving not only victims of natural disaster, but also workers and volunteers on the front lines.
