The Salvation Army Launches Nationwide Support Hotline
National COVID-19 Emotional and Spiritual Care Hotline available to everyone impacted by pandemic
In response to the rising levels of anxiety, uncertainty and fear resulting from this unprecedented pandemic, The Salvation Army launched its first nationwide hotline to provide emotional and spiritual care to anyone impacted by this crisis. If you’re looking for spiritual guidance or local services, or if you just need someone to talk with, Salvation Army officers who are pastors and emotional-care personnel are there to listen.
The phone number is 1-844-458-HOPE (4673). Staff are available from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will answer calls made from anywhere in the U.S. Counselors speak English and Spanish, and callers are encouraged to leave a message if they call after hours.
SHELTER-IN-PLACE UPDATE April 22 2020
Please note that our Donation Trailers and Thrift Stores are CLOSED due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In order to be in compliance with the Bay Area's "Shelter in Place" public health policy we have made the following adjustments to our activities and services effective immediately:
1. All Sunday religious and mid-week programs are cancelled until restrictions are lifted.
We will be streaming a live service by our Officers (Pastors) and their family this Sunday on Facebook. To follow along go to our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/SalvationArmyConcordCA/
2. Our social service programs including our Food Pantry will continue to operate but with appropriate adjustments to ensure social distancing within the guidelines.
Our Food Pantries in Concord and El Sobrante are still operating:
Monday – Wednesday - Friday: 10 am – 12 pm and 1 – 3:30 pm
Thursday: 1 – 3:30 pm
(Hours are subject to change)
Our Thrift Stores are no longer taking donations and trucks are no longer doing pickups.
3. Our main office remains open to allow us to answer calls and provide appropriate referrals.
We hope to have our Easter celebration as originally planned, but that will depend on conditions nearer the time.
Thank you for your understanding.
Please note that there are some situations where we are not able to help directly: Housing, Rent, Transportation, Medical Bills, Child Care etc., but we do keep in touch with a network of providers and are able to make referrals to those agencies best able to help.
If you need help with PG&E utilities, please see the information from PG&E in our Community Notices.
The best way to get in touch for assistance is to call our Church Office : (925) 676-6180.
If you would like to help financially we have a special donations website set up here. Note that all donations will stay in the local area of the donor.

How to help those in need in Contra Costa County
For more than a hundred and thirty eight years (since 1882), first in Oakland and then in Concord, The Salvation Army has been a vital part of the East Bay’s evangelical and social community.
Our exciting Sunday morning worship starts at 11:00 am and is usually finished by 12:15 pm. A highlight of family worship is a “food and fellowship” time immediately after the service.
The preaching is powerful and bible-based and you probably can't worship anywhere else where a brass band accompanies the singing every week! Looking for a spiritual home? Come join our Army!
Call the Church Office at (925) 676-6180 for more information.
