BackgroundThe Salvation Army is a faith- based nonprofit organization that provides social services and meets human needs without discrimination. The Omaha-Council Bluffs Salvation Army serves more than 100,000 people annually through seven social service initiatives: food, housing, youth development, material assistance, older adult and behavioral health services, and anti-human trafficking.
Brag LinesFor 130 years, The Salvation Army has offered programs for the most vulnerable in our community. In Omaha, 88 cents of every dollar is spent on program services. The Salvation Army has nine primary locations in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro including the Kroc Center, a community resource center, and Heritage Place, a new social service facility on 36th and Cuming streets.
