Our Purpose

The Salvation Army lives out its mission through diverse, unified expressions across Australia. We achieve our goals through a culture of courageous stewardship; committed to leadership and delivering innovative and progressive services within a financially sustainable framework. We know we are succeeding when we see people empowered beyond their circumstances.

You can find The Salvation Army in city streets, on rural farms and in suburban centres. Our people are on the ground day and night, bringing hope to those who need it most:

• Hope for people who are homeless or escaping violence.

• Hope for people trapped in addiction or battling mental illness.

• Hope for people affected by disasters or financial troubles.

• Hope for anyone feeling hopeless.

Together that’s what we are – a group of people united by faith and motivated by a message of hope.
