The Salvation Army is an integral part of the Christian Church, although distinctive in government and practice. The movement, founded in by William Booth, has spread from London, England, to many parts of the world. A similarly practical organisation today enables resources to be equally flexible. Responding to a recurrent theme in Christianity which sees the Church engaged in spiritual warfare, the Army has used to advantage certain soldierly features such as uniforms, flags and ranks to identify, inspire and regulate its endeavours. Evangelistic and social enterprises are maintained, under the authority of the General, by full-time officers and employees, as well as soldiers who give service in their free time. The Army also benefits from the support of many adherents and friends, including those who serve on advisory boards. Leadership in the Army is provided by commissioned officers who are recognised ministers of religion.
The Salvation Army exists to meet human need wherever, whenever, and however we can. Over 90 million Americans become victims of natural disasters every year. Each year, millions of children don't have any Christmas gifts to unwrap because there's no money in the budget. More than half a million people experience homelessness in America every day. Eighty-two cents of every dollar given to The Salvation Army goes to work in the community in which it was donated.
