Mission Statement
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
 
The Salvation Army is dedicated to meeting human need wherever it exists. Its basic services provide a safety net for the community. Our clients range in age from infants to elderly. We serve both men and women, and all races and ethnicities.
Background Statement Methodist minister William Booth and his wife, Catherine, founded The Salvation Army in 1865 to evangelize the unchurched masses who lived in the London slums. The Salvation Army was established in the U.S. in 1880 and is one of the oldest national charities. Dedicated to meeting human need wherever it exists, the Army's services have a very extensive range, with variation among communities according to specific local needs. The Salvation Army opened its doors in Kansas City in 1885.
Impact Statement
In 2016, The Salvation Army was able to follow through on the goals they had set, serving over 249,100 meals, provided 102,400 nights of lodging in shelters and other programs, and provided 50,300 individuals with emergency assistance in the Kansas City Metro. Pathway of Hope was advanced into more corps community centers, increases were recognized in feeding programs, and deliberate attention was given was given to meeting the holistic (spiritual and material) needs of clients in area community centers.
The Salvation Army of Greater Kansas City has the following goals set for 2017:
  • Assess programming and resource allocations based on 2017 needs study.
  • Build advisory council membership at eight corps community centers throughout greater Kansas City.
  • Finish expanding Pathway of Hope initiative to two remaining Salvation Army corps community centers in division.
  • Further develop youth programming in corps community centers serving Kansas City’s urban core.
Needs Statement

Funding for the life-saving programs offered by The Salvation Army is our most pressing organizational need. The Salvation Army is an international entity, however local dollars must be raised for local programming. What is raised here in the Greater Kansas City area, stays here to provide aid! 

The money raised here in Kansas City helps with funding of Emergency Assistance programs for those in need (whether it be rent, utility, or other assistance), support of our eight local community centers, our services for the homeless in the Kansas City metro area, and providing services for local kids though our Children's Shelter and day care programs. These are just a few of the ways The Salvation Army is helping in Kansas City.
 
In addition to funding, The Salvation army is always in need of gifts in-kind. There is always a need for adult size socks and underwear for those in our veterans program. In addition, The Salvation Army runs the Angel Tree program which allows children in need to be set up as an angel to be selected to receive Christmas gifts. Through donors selecting an angel, they can receive a present off of their wish list. In addition there is a need for Christmas stocking stuffers for children staying at The Children’s Shelter and veterans in our programs. During the holiday season a list of stocking stuffers is provided for those participating in order to know what to purchase.
 
There is also a need for volunteers in the metro area. There is most especially a need for volunteer drivers. This can be for transporting veterans to and from the VA Hosptial for doctor appointments or for delivering meals for those in need at Thanksgiving and Christmas. In order to be a Salvation Army volunteer driver, you must pass a background check and have proof of car insurance and motor vehicle registration.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Poor and working class families continue turning to The Salvation Army in record numbers. Your gift will help relieve their burden. The Army effectively serves the Metro area through eight corps community centers: Independence, KC Bellefontaine, KC Blue Valley, KC Kansas Citadel, KC Northland, KC Southland, KC Westport Temple, Olathe. Among the many programs offered are: substance abuse treatment, child care, senior care, homeless shelters, food pantries and meal programs, Christmas assistance, and emergency disaster services.

I volunteer because The Army befriends those who have few friends, and provides hope to those losing hope, with efficiency.

Our Slogan:

  • I feed empty stomachs and hungry souls.
  • I rebuild ruined homes and shattered lives.
  • I am a willing listener for a veteran with a story to tell.
  • I am bottled water and a encouraging smile for a weary firefighter.
  • I am an answered prayer, a silver lining, a second chance.
  • I am the Salvation Army.

Description

The Children's Shelter provides a safe, temporary residence for children, aged birth to seventeen years old, removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect and/or placed voluntarily by parents experiencing a crisis. Lack of child safety is the single most compelling reason for out of home placement, including physical and/or sexual abuse, mental and/or educational neglect, homelessness, and the inability of the caregiver to meet the needs of the child due to their own medical health, mental health, or substance abuse issues. 

The goal of the program is twofold: to provide a safe, nurturing environment and provide opportunities to help children learn how to keep themselves safe in the next placement, may it be with parents, relatives/kinships, or foster care while increasing healthy functioning while they recover from trauma. The program seeks to address child abuse through education, intervention, and treatment.
 
Types of services provided at The Children's Shelter include: Medical/Dental/Vision screenings and follow up, Case Management, Risk Assessments, Life Skills Groups, Sexual Abuse Prevention Groups, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Family and Sibling Therapy.

  • 90% of children aged 5 and over will demonstrate knowledge regarding safety planning as related to their abuse.
  • 90% of identified needs will have service delivery within 30 days.

Program Success Monitored By
Children's Shelter is governed by the State and Federal Laws, as children in the program have been removed from their homes by the Division of Family Services.

CEO Comments The Salvation Army is a multi-program agency serving the specific needs of each individual community. Goals, outcomes and measurements are specific to each program. The Salvation Army Divisional Social Services Department performs scheduled internal evaluations on all programs to ensure that results for stated outcomes are meeting expectations. Our early childhood programs are particularly vulnerable in recent years due to federal funding cutbacks.

CEO Comments

The Salvation Army has been in Kansas City for over 150 years. This affords us great credibility and trust within the community. However, we do not want to rely on our reputation and risk sliding into a status quo mentality. We don’t want to just maintain our standards. We want to raise the bar. So, the Bridgespan Group was hired to help us with a new strategic study. Discussions, planning sessions and 75 interviews were initiated with our advisory board members, staff and community leaders. A community needs study was completed to see what our community was lacking. Salvation Army social service programs were studied. Finally, it was determined that we wanted to take action with the belief that we could increase our level of impact on the community.

A vision of impact statement surfaced, “The Salvation Army in metro Kansas City helps low-income and vulnerable people, especially families, achieve stability and resilience by meeting their spiritual and human needs.” This continues to help keep us focused on the overarching goal.

“Hope Works” is the name of this vision and initiative. "Hope Works" is our promise to this community that we will strive to use our resources effectively and that we will consistently evaluate what we do and how we do it. It is our commitment to use our facilities, volunteers and staff in the most strategic way so that the metro residents gain a renewed sense of worth, dignity and purpose.

We are currently managing our new efforts with multi-disciplinary teams that include community leaders, government officials, and leaders from other agencies. Hope Works is how The Salvation Army is responding to the changing needs of the Kansas City metro area.

CEO Comments

In the United States, The Salvation Army is divided into 4 territories. Each territory is divided into divisions that are comprised of local corps community centers and social service units. Corps community centers are usually managed by officers, who are ordained ministers of The Salvation Army. The Kansas and Western Missouri Division is 1 of 10 Salvation Army divisions in the Central Territory. This division has 22 corps community centers, 8 located in the Kansas City metro area. The 8 corps are: Northland, Southland, Westport, Independence, Blue Valley, Bellefontaine, Olathe and Kansas City, Kansas. The Kansas City Kansas corps community center is located in The Salvation Army Harbor Light Village, which opened in early 2008, includes a center for homeless services, a facility for addiction recovery and is complete with a chapel, gymnasium, exercise rooms, classrooms and a computer lab.

The Kansas and Western Missouri Division also has 110 rural service units throughout Kansas and western Missouri. Other Salvation Army service units in the Kansas City metro area include the Divisional Headquarters at 3637 Broadway, Social Service programs facilities at 101 W. Linwood, and 5100 E. 24th Street, all in Kansas City, Missouri. In Kansas City, Kansas, program facilities are located at 1200 N. 7th Street and 1201-1203 Minnesota Avenue. MOSOS, a substance abuse treatment program is located at 24th and Quincy. An Emergency Disaster Services program located at 1110 E Truman Road, sharing office space in our warehouse ministries.
 
The board here in Kansas City is an advisory board. Because we are a division that is part of a larger territory no governance decisions can be made by the board here in Kansas City. The five individuals listed in the additional board members category are referred to as the cabinet. These individuals operate out of our Territorial Headquarters in Chicago and have the ability to make governance decisions.

Organization Comments The bulk of The Salvation Army's financial support continues to come from private contributions, a fact indicating the immense trust our donors place in the work of The Salvation Army. However, many of these donors have been negatively impacted by economic conditions. Some donors have become unemployed, or lost an essential secondary income due to another family member becoming unemployed. In addition, the current economic situation has had a negative effect on consumer confidence which, in turn, has impacted donations from those who remain employed. Government funding to human services agencies continues to drop. These factors have left The Salvation Army facing the dilemma of balancing the increased demand for services with the decreased funding needed to provide these services. To address this, we are attempting to increase funding through various means as well as scrutinizing budgets throughout the organization to determine if there are other areas where cuts can be made that will not adversely affect the quality or scope of our programs. An independent audit and report of The Salvation Army City Funds (Greater Kansas City) is conducted annually. The Divisional Finance Board (DFB) is ultimately responsible for all financial decisions. Members of the DFB for The Salvation Army Kansas & Western Missouri Division include the Divisional Commander, Divisional Business Secretary, Divisional Program Secretary, Divisional Youth Secretary, Divisional Social Services Director, Divisional Finance Administrator, and the Divisional Development Director. All are officers of The Salvation Army with the exception of Social Services Director, the Development Director and the Finance Administrator. The Divisional Headquarters and the Kansas City Metropolitan Command Offices oversee the Metro Advisory Board, which oversees the 8 corps centers and 8 residential programs. Each of the 8 corps has an advisory council and the residential program has one council.
