The Salvation Army and the LGBT Community
 

THE PEOPLE WE SERVE

Each year, thanks to generous donations, The Salvation Army serves 
more than 25 million Americans – or one person every second – 
from a variety of backgrounds. People who come to us for assistance 
will be served according to their need and our capacity to help – 
regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

THE PEOPLE WE HIRE

The Salvation Army embraces employees of many different faiths
 and orientations. Our hiring practices are open to all, and we adhere
 to all relevant employment laws, providing domestic partner benefits 
accordingly.

THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT US

Many people - including those in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and 
Transgender (LGBT) community - support us with time and 
financial resources because of a common cause and commitment: 
To serve people in need.
Non-Discrimination"I called (Harbor Light) and told them 
everything - that I was on a fixed income, 
disabled, transgender and trying to get 
away from my ex. It wasn't even an hour
 later that they called back and said 
they'd hold a spot for me. I arrived with
 nothing but a hope to start my life over
and a desire to be strong again. 
A year and a half later, I was back on my feet.
Living there was drama-free and 
I was never disrespected. They started a 
community service bug in me that's kept me active
 to this very day."     - Jacquelynn Massengill, 
Salvation Army volunteer and former transitional housing resident
