We determine success by our ability
to meet the needs of those struggling to make ends meet. As a result, our
accomplishments for the 2016 calendar year are as follows:
Goals: 1. Identify donors/funding streams

Pantry with a greater variety of foods, including cultural and ethnic
Secure funding to hire a part-time case worker to administer assistance through
our Emergency Food Pantry.
Salvation Army is a well-known organization throughout the Greater New Haven
area, providing as many programs and services as possible to serve those in
need from the Greater New Haven area. For this reason, many other organizations
refer those in need to The Salvation Army for assistance. Additionally, not a
day goes by without potential clients coming into the Corps or contacting staff
in desperate need of assistance. Unfortunately, this need has only continued to
grow. Our community has been incredibly generous in offering their support in
helping us meet these needs. Due to the economic downturn, coupled with an
increase in requests, The Salvation Army is still seeing an increase in
requests for assistance and allocated funds for emergency assistance are being
expended earlier and earlier each fiscal year forcing us to make difficult
decisions in available assistance and referring clients to other community
resources. Therefore, more funding for emergency services will allow more
individuals and families to benefit year-round.
We serve individuals and families in need residing within the
geographic areas outlined above, providing food, water utility assistance,
diapers, holiday assistance, and much more.
