There are many reasons why people in need seek the shield of The Salvation Army. They know that in a crisis our trained volunteers will be there able to provide the necessary assistance and comfort to make it through any emergency or disaster.

Whether that disaster should happen to you or your neighbor and it is natural or caused by man, Salvation Army volunteers have been ready to answer an emergency. Since 1900, volunteers have responded to local, national and international disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and acts of terrorism.

When you become an EDS volunteer, you will receive introductory training to emergency disaster services. Afterwards, based upon your areas of interest and ability there are intermediate and advanced level courses available.

Emergency Disaster Response 1


The Salvation Army Emergency Social Services Program bridges a gap for families and individuals by meeting their emergency and basic needs while they are working through their temporary financial crisis.

After assessing clients’ needs, Salvation Army caseworkers provide and assistance package to help clients during temporary setbacks. Part of that package may include referrals to other agencies, which have forged partnerships with The Salvation Army.

Services, based upon available funding, include assistance with mortgage/rent payments, utilities, clothing, groceries/meals, disaster recovery, funeral expenses, furniture, prescriptions and spiritual counseling.
