Below is an overview of what we do. If you would like to find out more about any of the services we offer, please get in contact with the Salvation Army in your Country.
For those in need, the Salvation Army runs a number of addiction rehabilitation programs. We believe in taking the holistic approach, not just helping the subject to overcome their addiction, but attacking the roots of that addiction.
The Salvation Army is one of the largest social care providers in the World. There are social programs running in almost every country we operate in.
From sites of natural and man-made disasters to places of human conflict, the Salvation Army is there to provide compassion and practical support to those in real and sudden need. The Army strives to provide first for the immediate physical needs but beyond that, ministry for the aching heart and the weary soul.
The Family Tracing Service was officially established in 1885, when it was designated as 'Mrs Booth's Enquiry Bureau'. It has developed to become one of The Salvation Army's most distinctive international services in many territories where it continues to be in operation 120 years on.
The mission of the Family Tracing Service is to restore or sustain family relationships by tracing relatives with whom contact has been lost, either recently or in the distant past.
Its key objectives are:
- To relieve the anxiety of enquirers, by assuring them of our concern, and the full support of our service
- To trace relatives, in order to advise them of the enquiry
- To open a line of communication between enquirer and enquiree
- To act as intermediaries until such time as trust is established between the parties
- Where appropriate, to seek to resolve the difficulties which brought about the break in the relationship
