Salvation Army

The Salvation Army's brand are the Red Kettles and Homelessness. However, the majority of people have little idea of how The Salvation Army works and how successful they are at providing solutions for the homeless. The numbers are astounding! Hear for yourself how the Austin Salvation Army is a solution to the community.
