May Charity: The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Beaumont, Texas
The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for more than 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through a broad array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.
Specifically at their Beaumont location, the Salvation Army offers worship services, emergency shelter, emergency financial assistance, casework services, transitional housing, men’s ministries, women’s ministries, and the Boys and Girls Club. The Boys and Girls Club is a separate non-profit that provides programs and services to promote the educational, vocational, health, and developmental needs for youth aged 6-18. The Salvation Army and Boys and Girls Club partner in Texas to share resources and have a greater combined impact.
