Our Mission

The Salvation Army is known for its social conscience — and its social action

The Salvation Army is known for its social conscience—and its social action.Despite strong living standards across many parts of Australia, the status quo of poverty persists. We are committed to helping people in need who do not have access to a fair and minimum standard of living and lack the opportunity to fully participate in society.

The Salvation Army in Australia works across a diverse range of social issues. Our key areas of service include homelessness, family and domestic violence, addiction and recovery, youth services and support for individuals and families in crisis.

We stand alongside individuals and communities to bring specific solutions to the wide range of issues that are affecting individuals and local communities across Australia.

As a worldwide evangelical movement, The Salvation Army’s work is motivated by our love of Jesus Christ. Out of this love comes our four mission intentions: transforming lives, caring for people, making disciples and reforming society.

Our values of human dignity, justice, hope, compassion and community are echoed through every expression of our work.
