Today, approximately three million Canadians, or one in 11 people, live in poverty. The Salvation Army recognizes that poverty is a critical issue, and that everyone has a right to access basic necessities such as nutritious food, health care, education and economic opportunity.

Hope happens every day at The Salvation Army Kamloops.  We can help with groceries to see you through a difficult time or obtaining furniture and household items after securing safe housing.  The Salvation Army is committed to ensuring dignity and extending a helping hand up from daily struggles.
