The Salvation Army Watsonville CA
The Salvation Army Watsonville Corps serves those in need on daily basis through other social service programs:
-- The Corner House, a 18-bed permanent housing facility dedicated to serving single mothers in drug and alcohol recovery. The program helps the mothers maintain sobriety and achieve independence while raising and supporting their children.
-- A daily meal program, providing breakfast and dinners to those in need. The program served nearly 16,000 breakfasts and 43,000 dinners in 2011.
-- Emergency assistance through the Family Services Department. Assistance includes a weekly food pantry, utility assistance, and referrals. Last year, the weekly food pantry distributed over 80,000 pounds of food to over 350 families in Watsonville. As support allows, the Family Services Department will also provide homeless prevention services and bus passes.
-- Seasonal assistance is provided to bring some extra joy to a low income individual or family during the holiday season. As available, Thanksgiving and Christmas meals are provided, and Christmas toys are distributed to children.
-- Spiritual counseling and fellowship programs are offered through the Watsonville Corps, in addition to Sunday worship services.
