Help in Times of Need
Sheila came to us for food when she found herself out of work. She was able to find temporary work that allowed her to sustain herself for awhile but when the work ran out she came back to us for help with food. Often, the people we help just need to get through a short period of time to get back on their feet. She is so grateful when we help her. She is always saying, “When I get a good job, I am going to remember how the Salvation Army has helped me and my family. Maybe then I can return the favor.”

The Salvation Army of Rome
The Rome Corps mission is to try and provide services and programs to the Rome community that are not be met elsewhere to high risk individuals and families and to minister to those in the community who are unchurched and are seeking a church family.
Our food pantry is open Monday through Friday and is one of two Food Bank members providing nutritiously balanced meals to individuals and families in Rome. The pantry helps our neighbors stretch their discretionary dollars to utilize for housing, transportation, and medical bills instead of food.
Long Point Camp, The Salvation Army’s overnight summer camp, boasts 138 acres of wooded hills, farmland, and shoreline on the western side of Seneca Lake, just off Route 14 near Penn Yan. Each year we offer a week-long, overnight camp experience to qualified children of low-income families. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, camp gives kids from the Rome area an opportunity to experience life-changing relationships and make memories to last a lifetime.
Music & Arts Program
Children participate in weekly music nights during the school year and sharpen their music skills as they learn to play an instrument of their choice, sing, and dance. A warm and nourishing meal, as well as transportation for those who need it, are also provided.
Troops Character Development Program
During the school year, the Sunbeams program engages youth in fun activities and projects, all while keeping them focused on leadership and learning life skills in a safe and caring environment. A warm and nourishing meal, as well as transportation for those who need it, are also provided. Social Services provides monthly and seasonal, material and non-material assistance to low-income households as resources and funding is available.
Provides social development activities to persons of all ages, with a primary emphasis upon youth between the high risk ages of 6 to 17.
Currently, we serve over 30 youth in this program. The Sunbeam program emphasizes the importance of growing spiritually, mentally, physically and socially through fun activities, field trips, camps, service projects, earning activity emblems and so much more! Open to ages 5-18 years old. Meets on Tuesdays. Join us! Please call for more info.
Holiday Food/Toy Assistance
Provides a holiday meal and toy basket to low income families to help supplement those who may be unable to provide otherwise. The holidays can be an especially difficult time for people struggling to make ends meet. We provide Christmas meals, gifts, toys – and hope – to those who need it most. Angel trees allow people to “adopt” and shop for an “angel” in need.
