46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.

Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.

We are to feed, shelter, assist and equip the poor.

Poverty is so often the result of - and the catalyst for - chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance - first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.

Poverty doesn't have to be permanent. The Salvation Army helps those in need to overcome poverty through a variety of programs.

"The Harvest" Food Pantry
By offering access to free, fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity.

In Sheridan, we provide families with a shopping style food bank through our Harvest program, that allows people the freedom to choose the foods they want and that fit into their cultural or religious dietary needs. 

Monday: 1:30pm-3:00pm

Wednesday: 10:00am-12:00pm; 1:30pm-3:00pm (Meat Day)

Friday: 10:00am-12:00pm; 1:30pm-3:00pm

In addition, we receive food from the government's TEFAP program which we put into pre-built food boxes and distribute on the second Thursday of each month from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM. There is an Income Requirement for participating in the program.

Bills Assistance
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head.

Our social services office is open each day from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM. It is best to get an appointment prior to coming in for assistance. Please ask for Bill.

Veteran Assistance
As part of our dedication to helping those who have served in the military, we work with the local VA medical center to alleviate financial concerns of Veterans with a DD-214. We assist with rent, utilities, and emergency lodging when needed. This program also helps provide our veterans with clothing, tools, and specialized equipment that is needed for jobs or interviews.

Seasonal Assistance

During certain times of the year there is assistance available to meet a specific seasonally based need. Seasonal assistance can consist of help with school supplies for the beginning of the school year, Winter Coat giveaway, a community Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes, and toys for children in need at Christmas.
