The Salvation Army's mission is to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of all people without discrimination through seven program and service initiatives: food, housing, youth development, material assistance, behavioral health, older adult services, and anti-human trafficking.
Gifts during Omaha Gives! will directly support the Human Needs Fund, which helps cure hunger, provide shelter, equip families, empower youth, partner with adults, bring fellowship to seniors, and fight human trafficking in the Omaha community.
"The feeling of giving to the community through The Salvation Army is incredibly rewarding. They follow the old adage, 'Not a handout, but a hand up.' With that kind of mindset, you know you're giving people the kind of help they need most." -Wanda
"This Salvation Army program has been a godsend. It's given me the opportunity to concentrate solely on my mental health, which has been a huge weight off my shoulders." -Curtis
"The Salvation Army has seen me through a lot of hard times and a lot of really depressing times. But they have always been here for me and have always encouraged me" -Sandra
