Since 1890, armed with tambourines and a mission to serve, The Salvation Army held its first meeting in Delaware. More than 200 voices were lifted in song and prayer in the second story of 220 Market Street. Although our location has changed, the mission of The Salvation Army in the State of Delaware remains as it began 127 years ago. The work and ministry will continue to grow providing human outreach by offering spiritual, emotional and assistance to people in need.
You can help us continue our efforts to do the most good with a simple donation.
