"The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal 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." 

Community Outreach Ministries partners with the Salvation Army to provide additional resources to Polk County. As a Service Extension of the Salvation Army, COM gets to use 85% of funds donated to the Salvation Army for use in Polk County. We use this money in conjunction with COM's case management program to assist local families with rent, utilities, medication, and transportation.

COM also coordinates the annual Bellringing Campaign on behalf of the Salvation Army. To find out more or to sign up for bellringing, click below.

NOTE: Community Outreach Ministries and the Salvation Army are separate non-profit entities.
