International Mission Statement

World History

The Salvation Army was founded in London, England by William Booth, a Methodist minister, and his wife Catherine in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Despite religious persecution, Booth's goal was to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the total individual.

From him was born the phrase often associated with The Salvation Army, "Soup, soap and salvation."

Through courage and fortitude, he achieved his goals.

“If a man is hungry, feed him. Cold and tired, clothe and shelter him. Give him whatever he needs,
bed, a job, a warm coat. But most of all, give him understanding, belief in himself. Help him help himself."~William Booth

Today, The Salvation Army is active in 104 countries around the world. It is one of the most well-known and loved non-profit service organizations in the United States. The Salvation Army is active in the United States in more than 1,173 cities throughout the 50 states, as well as many service extension units.

Our Local History

Service to people is the mainstay of The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army of Brown County provides programs and service which meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the community without discrimination. The Salvation Army began serving the people of the Green Bay area on February 14, 1891 and has been in continuous operation for over 120 years.

The Salvation Army has grown out of various locales throughout the Green Bay area and has been at its present site of 626 Union Court since its dedication on May 5, 1974. Often referred to simply as "The Corps", because it contains a church at the location, this site of The Salvation Army is regarded as a stable and respected partner in service to the residents of the entire county.

In 2005, The Salvation Army, nationally, was gifted approximately $1.6 billion from the estate of Joan Kroc, widow of Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds. The gift was restricted to the construction, outfitting and endowing of community centers that will provide opportunities to improve lives for the underserved and others around the neighborhoods in which they are built. With this money, The Salvation Army has started projects in over 20 communities throughout the country.

The Salvation Army of Brown County was fortunate to be one of only 6 cities to be granted a "Kroc Center" in the Midwest. In April of 2010, The Salvation Army of Brown County celebrated with the community, the ground breaking for the Green Bay Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center. Programming inside the Kroc Center is designed to meet the unmet needs in the community and fulfill Mrs. Kroc's vision. Programming for our center includes, worship and performing arts, creative arts, educational and family enhancement, after school programming, summer camps, wellness, fitness, sports and aquatics. The Kroc Center opportunity provides The Salvation Army with another tool to reach out and serve others in need in His name.
