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.
Sometimes there is just not enough paycheck for the bills and food for the family. Those are the times that The Salvation Army in Oroville can help. We offer a bag of "Emergency Food" to get a family through their time of need. Sometimes it is just that "extra" box of cereal or can of tuna - that makes a difference. We can't fill every pantry - but we can supplement many. The Food Pantry is available Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for EMERGENCY food assistance.
