First started by William Booth in 1865 in the East End of London, “The Christian Mission” first offered assistance to those who the traditional churches would not accept. Having penned “The Salvation Army” in 1878, Booth then adopted the moniker for his growing pack of supporters. Today, the organization helps more than 30 million people with their many programs that offer comfort and support, as well as community and fellowship.
