Help us fight food insecurity and child hunger

Food Security: 1million people in Miami-Dade don’t know where their next meal is coming from. 300,000 of them are children. Together, we are putting an end to child hunger in Miami-Dade by connecting families with the resources that they need to feed their children every day.


Through the Food Pantry Project, The Salvation Army delivers more than 2.5 million lbs. of food each year to local families in need. In 2013 alone, we served 157,915 meals and provided additional food to fill the pantries of 4,401 food-insecure people in Miami-Dade.

Disaster Relief

Miami is in one of the highest risk regions for natural disasters in the United States.


When disaster strikes, families living in poverty face a greater struggle to rebuild than their more comfortable neighbors.


Disasters are expected to cause financial pain, but people who are already living in poverty do not have the financial assets to respond, recover and rehabilitate quickly or completely. Natural disasters often push these members of our community even further into debt, making it nearly impossible for them to break the cycle of poverty.


The Salvation Army is a national leader in emergency services, providing South Florida with the best immediate care and long-term support in the event of a natural disaster or local crisis. In 2013, The Salvation Army Miami-Dade served 3,500 people in more than 17 disasters. With two canteens (mobile feeding units) based in Miami and hundreds more available for deployment nationally, The Salvation Army is fully equipped to serve our community with food, comfort, spiritual care and emergency response.

Child Development

Children who grow up in poverty learn to feel victims of their circumstances rather than agents of positive change in their communities. Their extremely low self-esteem translates into low regard for others, broken relationships, depression and academic failure, all of which work to reinforce the message of worthlessness.


The Salvation Army’s child development programs include: music education,, summer camps, Christmas toy distribution, homework tutoring and spiritual development. There programs are designed to help at-risk children cultivate new interests and passions, helping them build confidence and a sense of self.


In 2013, 87 kids attended our summer camps and more than 3,000 will receive a toy this Christmas.


Parents’ who send their children to The Salvation Army witness the transforming power of our development programs on their children’s behavior and academic success. By helping the young people of Miami-Dade develop their artistic, interpersonal and spiritual skills, we are building a foundation for academic success, health and overall well-being.


Our programs empower children, giving them the confidence that they need to look toward the future with hope. We are cultivating agents of change.


Tonight in Miami-Dade County, 22,000 people are looking for a place to sleep. 800 Miami residents are chronically homeless

Homelessness is caused by a complex interplay between a person's individual circumstances and adverse structural failings, which are beyond individual control.


Over time or in a moment, these factors can lead to the devastation of homelessness.


Supporting Families and Children

Homelessness hits children especially hard, affecting everything from their health and academic achievement, to their emotional well being and future success . The Salvation Army shelter offers 260 beds distributed among three lodges: The Family and Woman’s Lodge, the Men’s Lodge and the Helping Hand Project.


In 2012, these temporary programs served 3,277 people and provided 65,714 nights of lodging for individuals and families in need in 2013. We also helped 73 families keep their homes through our rental assistance program. Our goal is not only to offer them a temporary shelter but also to empower our temporary residents to regain their independence and return to being self-sufficient members of our community.

Espiritual Care

Hope is the medium of the Christian faith. Hope imagines, envisions and anticipates the possibilities of a better future. Hope combats hopelessness, the greatest killer of joy and initiative. Hope is about attitude and a state of being and less about the fulfillment of immediate needs. Hope becomes the vehicle for searching and finding purpose and meaning in life.


As a church and Christian movement, The Salvation Army searches for alleviation of material needs, and presents biblical possibilities for self-understanding and healing within the context of desperate situations.


Our Army, integrated by pastors (Officers), ministers, soldiers and caring leaders, believes that it is the love and caring, the honest compassion of fellow believers (Salvationists) and the hospitality toward those in despair that is healing balm to bruised and battered souls.


Our ministry not only fights poverty by providing resources to alleviate material needs, but we fight poverty with simple acts of love and compassion, such as visiting, comforting, sustaining and encouraging those in need. Our mission is not only to foster hope for a better future but also to bring healing into broken relationships and increase their sense of security and acceptance in Christ.
