Across Australia, during the 2016-17 financial year, 200,000 people were assisted by Salvation Army services, with 486,000 occasions of emergency relief assistance. Some 26,500 people were helped by Salvation Army homelessness and housing services, and 19,700 people were assisted by the Salvos’ drug and alcohol treatment services.*
People matter. Practical, dignified support makes a difference. Lives enhanced are lives to be cherished. Those words remain true and relevant. They are backed up by The Salvation Army’s actions.
