IMPORTANT: Those seeking Emergency Assistance need to visit specific Salvation Army facilities, based on their residential zip code. For those outside of Fairfield County, please follow the location link listed on this page for direction to your local Salvation Army center.

The Salvation Army of Fairfield County meets daily with those who come seeking various forms of assistance -- their needs are often basic.

They receive food from our pantries and clothing vouchers. We manage their cases individually, as we seek opportunities to enrich their lives and empower them to become self-sufficient.  Salvation Army personnel are also available as community resources and may be able to connect individuals with community partners to further meet their needs.

Services to families and individuals are provided regardless of race, creed, color, sex, religious affiliation or age, consistent with the Mission of The Salvation Army. Clients may be self-referred or referred by agencies, friends, relatives or other interested parties. Services are available for residents of Fairfield County. 

Walk-ins for assistance are accepted Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
