From its beginning, the Salvation Army has been motivated primarily by a love for God and a desire to serve mankind. Now over 140 years later that motivation has not changed. As an internationally recognized denomination within the Christian Church, Salvation Army congregations gather each Sunday for worship and fellowship in many cities throughout the Carolinas. There are many programs offered at the Salvation Army, such as women's ministries, men's fellowship and youth groups.
The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs are unique places created by the Salvation Army that offer programs and services that exemplify and actively practice Christian principles. This is done in a way that causes recipients of our services to learn to admire the values, ethics and skills presented, and incorporate them into their own lives. To reach today's young people and their families in a non-threatening way our clubs create an accepting, positive and challenging environment where young people of every background, circumstance, race and creed feel welcomed. As part of the Salvation Army's family and services, this program is offered to the poorest and most needy among us. It is for this reason that the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs are so vital to the Salvation Army's mission and ministry.
The Salvation Army is located at 2505 North Street. Call 843-524-3727 for more information.

How to apply
Service members or eligible family members who have an emergency need should contact the nearest NMCRS location and make an appointment to be seen by an NMCRS caseworker. Bring your ID card and latest Leave and Earnings Statement with you, if available. If that office is closed and the emergency is of such a nature that it cannot wait until the next business day (e.g. death in the immediate family), the answering machine will provide instructions for obtaining after-hours assistance.
