About The Salvation Army of Austin

 

 

Doing the Most Good

The Salvation Army’s national brand strategy and distinct identifiable message is “Doing The Most Good”.  Moreover, it is a promise the organization makes to its contributors, clients, associates, officers and employees. The idea of Doing the Most Good  originated from Evangeline Booth, daughter of William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army.

She said:

"There is no reward equal to that of doing the most good to the most people in the most need."

The Salvation Army pledges to Do The Most Good with contributions of money, time and resources, evidenced in that 82 cents of every dollar donated are directly allocated to services that assist people in need.

We are Doing The Most Good with your contributions of time, money and resources.

 

 

Our Mission

Inspired by our Christian mission, we offer the resources and support to lift up our neighbors in crisis.  As the largest provider of emergency shelter in Central Texas, annually we serve more than 10,000 men, women and children with shelter, addiction rehabilitation, clothing, meals, holiday support, and direct client assistance.  Each year we successfully case manage hundreds from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.

 

 

Our History

The history of The Salvation Army in our community is long and storied starting in 1865,  when William Booth, an ordained Methodist minister, aided by his wife Catherine, formed an evangelical group dedicated to preaching among the “unchurched” people living in the midst of appalling poverty in London’s East End. Booth’s ministry recognized the interdependence of material, emotional and spiritual needs. In addition to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, Booth became involved in the feeding and shelter of the hungry and homeless and in rehabilitation of alcoholics.

Today, The Salvation Army’s outreach is active in virtually every corner of the world and serves in over 100 countries, offering the message of God’s healing and hope to all those in need.
