The Salvation Army Community Services Calgary
Calgary area, Downtown
closing today (Thu, 21 Jan)
full time

For more than 130 years, The Salvation Army has had the privilege of serving vulnerable people in communities across Canada. Last year, we helped over 1.7 million people.

Our services continually adapt to meet emerging needs.

At work in more than 400 communities across the country, The Salvation Army has grown to become one of Canada’s largest non-governmental providers of social services. An organization that has people at the core of its mission, they have taken unprecedented measures during COVID-19—altered their programs and service delivery—to ensure that those who rely on them for help stay healthy and safe.
