By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.
46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.
Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.
Poverty is so often the result of and the catalyst for chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance, first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head.
In Cheyenne, we offer food boxes as a form of meal assistance. Food boxes are available Tuesday - Thursday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
Utility, Rent, & Transportation Assistance
We may be able to help struggling families and individuals avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by supplementing their income with utility assistance, rent and other vital payments as funding allows. These are on a case by case basis. Please call 307.634.2769 for more information.
