About Us

The Salvation Army of Greater Houston serves Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties, serving an area that spans 3,739 square miles and a population of 5.5 million people.

Founded in 1865 by William Booth to minister to the homeless in Victorian England, The Salvation Army was brought to Houston in 1889 by Captain Hattie B. Savage and her band of three other women. They were literally a band playing the guitar, drum, banjo, and accordion.
