Who We Are

There are 40 Salvation Army Worship and Service Centers throughout the 28-County Western Pennsylvania Division.  Led by Salvation Army officers, who are ordained ministers, each of these centers are a church, a social organization, and a safe haven for children.

There is something special for everyone at a Salvation Army Worship and Service Center.  For all ages from youth to seniors, a variety of recreational, educational and spiritual support services are offered.  Each location provides unique programming according to the needs of the community.  At any location, a family in need can walk through the front door and receive assistance specific to their individual needs from staff who will treat them with dignity and respect.

The new North Boroughs location will assist those living in the areas of zip codes 15116, 15202, 15209, 15212, 15214, 15229, 15233, and 15237.
