The Salvation Army Southwest Division, serving Arizona, New Mexico and Southern Nevada, helped more than 656,000 people in 2020 through a range of social services. By providing food for the hungry, clothing and shelter for the homeless, rent and utilities assistance, disaster and heat relief, senior activity and outreach, adult rehabilitation, and opportunities for underprivileged children, The Salvation Army is doing the most good at more than 75 centers of operation in the Southwest.
Approximately 82 cents of every dollar donated to The Salvation Army are used to support its life-transforming social services. We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, and contributions are deductible for federal income tax purposes – and in the case of Arizona, a state tax credit – to the extent permitted under Section 170(b)(2) for corporations.
An international movement, The Salvation Army is an evangelical arm of the universal Christian Church. Our message is based on the Bible, and our ministry is motivated by the love of God. We preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
In the first-ever listing of “America’s Favorite Charities,” by The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The Salvation Army ranked as the country’s largest privately-funded, direct-service nonprofit.

We Evolve to Fill the Gaps
We work to understand the needs of each community in which we serve and use our resources in ways that fill gaps without duplicating existing services. Our programs evolve where the community needs them, so we may shine our light as a youth center in one community but as an emergency shelter in another.
We Change Lives, Not Days
We look at the whole person and partner with them to provide a pathway out of poverty by focusing on their capabilities and empowering them to overcome barriers. We offer help for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a person to create a longer-lasting change in their own life and to break the cycle of crisis in their family tree.
We Know We Can't Do It Alone
We've been at it long enough to know that we're only as strong as the relationships we build. That's why we build partnerships, not walls, with other organizations in the communities where we serve. And, it's why we need people like you to join us in the fight for good by giving your time, talent and resources so we can continue serving others.
