The Salvation Army's primary goals are to offer:
- Material comfort
- Physical comfort
- Emotional and Spiritual Care
All Salvation Army disaster response services are managed locally, by people who live and work in the communities they serve. In the Tennessee Valley, the Army maintains a mobile kitchen, or canteen, to provide meals, hydration and comfort for disaster victims and relief workers. In addition, the Army furnishes clean-up kits, food, bottled water and various donated goods. Long-term recovery and rebuilding are a major part of efforts to make communities whole again following a significant disaster.
In addition to domestic relief work, humanitarian aid following international disasters is provided by The Salvation Army in the impacted country or through The Salvation Army World Service Office (SAWSO).
