The Salvation Army Kansas & Western Missouri


The Salvation Army has more than 400 after school programs in the United States.

The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods across the country. These programs provide children with a safe place to play and learn in a supervised and constructive environment. In many cases, The Salvation Army will provide faith-based sports, arts, and music programs, which may or may not be available in the local school systems. As the economy has declined and local municipalities have struggled to fund these extracurricular programs. The Salvation Army has made an effort in many communities to provide these learning opportunities.

The Salvation Army supplements and supports kids’ educational opportunities through:
