The Salvation Army York Community Church

  On a journey together to know God and to discover and live out His plan for our lives

Community and Family Services
Where life begins and God's love never ends.

Welcome, we are glad that you are here!

We would like to offer our help and support.

We provide physical, emotional & spiritual care

This is an opportunity for us to know where you

are in life and what supports you are looking for.

We, at The Salvation Army, truly care

about you and your well-being, which

means providing more than just housing and food. 

We are spiritual beings (“religious” or not) and

we all need support at times in order to

succeed in life. We would like to provide

physical, emotional and spiritual care plans

as part of our support. Please let

us know if you would like us to

help you in this way.

Food & other assistance

Sometimes the month lasts longer than you money.  The food bank provides assistance to people unable to afford basic necessities.   We also provide referrals to the thrift store for clothing an furniture.
