About Us

In Waukesha, Wisconsin since 1894. Based in London, England since 1865.


Waukesha County - A Surprise?

The Waukesha Salvation Army has had a strong presence in Waukesha County Wisconsin since 1894. We have consistently demonstrated our ability locally to "Meet Human Need at the Point of Need."

Ironically, Waukesha County is often viewed as prosperous and even well-to-do. However, the County knows significant pockets of poverty and true need.

For instance, many are surprised to learn how many food pantries exist and fulfill a constant demand  in Waukesha County.


Will You Someday Be In Need?

Moreover, anyone's circumstances can suddenly change, creating very real and immediate need for shelter, clothing, food, basic furniture, direct financial assistance, counsel and belief in the future

 Among many activities and outreach efforts, the Waukesha Salvation Army's major programs include: 

We care for the poor, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, love the unlovable, and befriend the friendless.


An Efficient Charity of Long-standing With an Excellent Reputation

We've been called "the most efficient and effective organization in the U.S.," and year-after-year the Army is named "America's favorite charity."

The Salvation Army was founded in London, England in 1865. Its charitable mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

The Salvation Army is very efficient in its work. On average, we use fully 83-cents of every dollar donated in direct services for people in need. As a result, people believe that when they contribute to The Salvation Army, they're giving where it will do the most good.
