How To Receive Emergency Assistance...
Our goal is to work one-on-one with every client who comes to us for assistance to determine how we can best help and ultimately, how we can assist them to become self sufficient and not need to return to us for services. A particular point of interest today is the commercial resurgence of downtown Allentown and the extreme poverty and need just a few blocks away. We are grateful for these changes to the city and look forward to working with local businesses to help reduce crime, blight and poverty by offering life changing services to individuals in need.
Our Allentown Corps building operates with Allentown Corps Officers and staff that, with a team of volunteer’s, coordinates community based emergency services, youth services, meal programs and holiday assistance programs.
To receive emergency assistance please call 610-432-0129 or email us at Danilo.Velez@use.SalvationArmy.org

The Salvation Army, Allentown Corps have been supporting their communities’ youth and families for over a hundred years. The programs that the Corps host would not be possible without the support of businesses in those communities. Now, it’s even easier for those businesses to give, thanks to EITC.
What is EITC?
Pennsylvania businesses that want to give back to their communities are offered the opportunity to do so through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Sponsored through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), businesses are given a tax credit equal to 75% of their contribution to approved non-profit scholarship or educational improvement organizations. Any business that pays Pennsylvania’s corporate income tax can take part in this program
The Salvation Army (Allentown Youth Enrichment Program) is pleased to be an approved Education Improvement Organization (EIO) by Pennsylvania for its Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
The EITC program helps The Salvation Army provide low-income children with high-quality educational opportunities that they need to learn and grow, including After-school & Summer Programs, Scholarships and Supplies.
Your business can help support the families and children in your community. Find out how, by contacting Deirdre.Govan@use.SalvationArmy.org
