At our location on Gladys Avenue in Abbotsford, British Columbia, we are hard at work endeavouring to help the poor, the homeless, the addicted, the hungry, the lonely, and the forgotten – people who are experiencing challenges with the basic necessities of daily living in our city.

We make it our concern to feed them, care for them, and help them find the path to wholeness. As you explore our various ministries through these pages, you will discover what we do and why we are so passionate about our work. You may even find ways you want to get involved and make a difference in our community.

Our Purpose

Now at work in 131 countries, The Salvation Army’s operations in Canada began in 1882 and have grown to become one of the largest direct providers of social services in the country. In Bermuda, the Army has been at work since 1896.

In the Abbotsford-Mission area of British Columbia, the Cascade corps was established in 1984.

The ministry has two locations – the Cascade Community Church on Delair Road and the Centre of Hope on Gladys Avenue.

The Centre of Hope includes Redemption Café, Meal Centre, Pet friendly shelter, emergency shelter and extreme weather shelter, Next Steps Program, Family services, daily produce and bread, Medical clinic, Outreach teams, housing support, case workers for advocacies and referrals and Super Sunday services.

The Emergency Disaster Services has a community response unit based at The Centre of Hope.  They respond to requests from fire, police, search and rescue and other agencies during local or provincial emergencies.

In 2008 The Salvation Army won the Abbotsford Business Excellence Award in the category of Social Responsibility.
