Happy All Saints Day and Maryland #EmancipationDay. In 1864, Maryland became first state to voluntarily free slaves, adopting new constitution November 1. 150 years later, still working to end #humantrafficking, with more people (numbers-wise, not per capita) in #moderndayslavery than at any other time in history!

During #FashionWeek  in Oslo, the #SalvationArmy  drew attention to their second-hand clothes shops using a walkway installed at the exit of a subway station.

Our contribution to #WorldPhotographyDay (no, it's not ALWAYS Christmas at The #SalvationArmy, but it IS getting to be that time...)

Just our favorite photo from the last year...thanks to #MECU for their continued support of #AngelTree  and such a beautiful setting for their collection of gifts for kids in need!

More than 1,800 victims of #humantrafficking in England and Wales have received support from the #SalvationArmy since 2011, the charity has said....

#LaborTrafficking cases grew at a faster rate last year than #SexTrafficking for the first time, the charity said.

As we celebrate #LaborDay , taking time to reflect on #labortrafficking  and working conditions. In 1891, The #SalvationArmy  opened a match factory to provide better wages and safer working conditions...more than 100 years later, match industry is safe, but still so many workers who need all of us to pay attention and ensure rights!

Meeting human needs in Central Maryland in His name...
Introduction
The Salvation Army of Central Maryland has been serving those in need without discrimination for more than 130 years in the Baltimore area. Today, the Salvation Army of Central Maryland serves residents of Baltimore City, as well as Baltimore, Howard, Carroll, and North Anne Arundel counties, through a broad array of social services that range from providing emergency food, utilities, and rental assistance; homeless services that include a 24-hour emergency and transitional housing shelter for women, children, and families, as well as the FeedMore, the only evening feeding program in Baltimore City; relief for disaster victims; holiday assistance that includes Thanksgiving meals and the Christmas Angel Tree and Red Kettle programs; opportunities for underprivileged children; and three community centers (or "corps") that serve as both places of worship and service to their respective communities. 
 
Nationwide, nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year, with 82 cents of every dollar spent being used to support direct services.
