The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The State College Salvation Army Corps is proud to be a part of that movement, serving the needs of residents within all Centre County zip codes.  All families and individuals in crisis are considered and qualified for all support services.

In addition to currently offered programs and social services, The Salvation Army is always seeking new opportunities to offer a helping hand within Centre County.
