Founded by William Booth in 1865, The Salvation Army's mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Founded in Newark in 1880, The Salvation Army New Jersey Division has been 'Doing the Most Good' statewide. The Divisional Headquarters is located in Union, NJ and oversees all operations and programs for service-providing units of The Salvation Army throughout the State of New Jersey. To effectively minister and serve within such a large area, the New Jersey Division has 28 Corps Worship & Community Centers which are the most basic service components of The Salvation Army, providing religious and social services adapted to the needs of their communities. The New Jersey Division also has the The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Newark Ironbound and Senior Center, one residential camp (Tecumseh) in Pittstown, NJ, three shelters (Elizabeth, Montclair and Perth Amboy) and 101 active service units (comprised of approximately 700 volunteers who administer Salvation Army services where there is no Army facility). In addition to Corps Worship & Community Centers and service extension units, there are four Adult Rehabilitation Centers and approximately 20 Salvation Army Thrift (or Family) Stores. Proceeds from Thrift Stores support the Adult Rehabilitation Centers throughout the state.
