Social Services Home

Tragedy and crisis can come at a moment’s notice. Families face tough social challenges, unemployment, abusive relationships, eviction or disaster. Whether it means providing food for a meal, shelter to a burn-out victim, counseling in times of crisis, or making sure there are adequate funds to heat a family’s home in the cold of winter, meeting basic needs goes hand in hand with The Salvation Army’s mission. The Salvation Army is motivated by a love for God and a concern for the needs of all humanity. A trained, professional casework staff cares for those in need of assistance by sharing such aid as Rent Evictions assistance / Utility Disconnects Assistance/ Food Pantry Assistance / Disaster Services / Lunch Bunch Feeding Program in the Niles Buchanan area and Cass County.

An appointment is needed for Rent and Utility Assistance, and there is specific information which is required when making an appointment. Food Assistance is available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with no appointment needed. Picture Id’s (driver's license, passport, government issued ID, etc) are required.
