CORPS Community Center
Corps is The Salvation Army's word for church. It is a corps of dedicated members, called soldiers, who meet together for worship and wholeheartedly serve those in need with a sacrificial zeal. The familiar uniforms are worn by these soldiers and their officers so that they are recognized as soldiers in God's army, ready to fight the evil in our world, like poverty and abuse. The corps also provides many services to the community, such as emergency food, utility and rental assistance, clothing vouchers and short-term emergency shelter.
