A Refuge of Love, Hope, and Change – All Thanks to You

“You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat” (Isaiah 25:4).

This verse from the book of Isaiah is the foundation for The Salvation Army’s 2013 Online Annual Report’s theme, “Refuge,” now available at

In troubled times, we seek refuge – an escape from the world that’s crashing down around us, a sanctuary from our sufferings, a haven of strength and healing. And for millions of men, women and children throughout the country, that refuge is The Salvation Army.

The generosity of donors and volunteers allowed The Salvation Army to offer a refuge of love, hope, and change to more than 30 million Americans in 2013; a shelter for the homeless, a place of sustenance for the hungry, recovery for the downtrodden after disaster, and spiritual renewal for the addicted.

And across the country, children found a refuge of possibility for their futures through life-changing experiences at summer camps.
The Salvation Army is blessed and humbled by your life-changing support.
