The Salvation Army's mission is to meet basic human needs without discrimination and its ministry is motivated by the love of God. The Salvation Army's goal is to help individuals and families deal with the many challenges they face in their daily lives through social, educational, emotional and spiritual development. Every program and service is designed to support and develop self-sufficiency and hope.
The programs and services in greatest need benefit the communities the New Haven Corps serves year-round, such as its Food Pantry, Diaper Bank, and the utility assistance component of its Emergency Assistance Program. Holiday assistance has also been met with a positive response and support through volunteerism, recognition and donations. In the event additional funding is secured, the New Haven Corps will offer rental assistance once again, which had previously been discontinued due to funding constraints, as numerous requests for such assistance continue.
In addition to the emergency assistance that it provides, the New Haven Corps also offers other kinds of assistance to meet a variety of needs, such as its voucher program, providing vouchers redeemable for clothes and furniture. Nursing home and veteran visits are also conducted to provide fellowship to those who may otherwise be overlooked, depressed, or lonely. An opportunity for local children to attend an overnight camp is another need that the New Haven Corps meets. The children of the low-income families who benefit would not be able to attend such a camp experience otherwise. Each year, the New Haven Corps strives to offer at least 50 children from the Greater New Haven area with a minimum cost, week-long camp opportunity through The Salvation Army's Camp CONNRI in Ashford, CT. With such a positive response from those served, the New Haven Corps strives to find ways to reduce the cost of attending camp even further and to offer this experience to even more families.
