2017 Impact Report

20 September 2017

Impact is not as easy to measure as the number of meals we offer daily or the beds we provide every night. It is far more complex.

However, in our experience, it is often the things that are the hardest to do that prove to be the most worthwhile.

The investment you’ve made in The Salvation Army is expressed in our ability to provide expert services. But the long-term impact of your generosity has the power to change lives and transform communities, as you will discover in this report.

Every person who accepts support from The Salvation Army has their own story – a journey that began before they connected with us and one that will continue long after. Your dedication to the mission and values of The Salvation Army enables us to walk with people from darkness to light, and give hope where it’s needed most.
