Diversity & Inclusion
The policy of The Salvation Army is to provide equal opportunity and equal consideration to all peoples without regard to race, religion, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, color, creed, sex, age or physical disablilty.
For Salvation Army social service programs, no one is denied service based on sexual orientation. Nor is this considered a factor in hiring, including in enlisiting officers in the organization. We adhere to all relevant employment laws; providing domestic partner benefits according to local laws.
Partners for a Racism-Free Community
The Salvation Army Social Services is proud to be part of the community’s efforts to address and embrace the values of honesty, integrity, and respect for others. These values permeate the way we conduct business. We support an inclusive policy of diversity among our employees, suppliers, and clients/participants because we recognize that diversity yields significant benefits and lives out our justice principles. In every aspect of our work, we seek to be racism-free.
Accordingly, we support these goals:
- Striving to assure that our recruiting efforts are designed to provide us with a diverse group of qualified candidates for opportunities within our organization.
- Striving to work with vendors and suppliers who have diversity policies of their own.
- Treating everyone with respect.
- Keeping our workplace free of harassment, discrimination, and intolerance.
The Salvation Army Social Services is a Level 1 partner with the Partners for a Racism-Free Community through achieving the Level 1 Certification with the PRFC's I CARE process. We are committed to this work and will seek opportunities to grow as well as additional levels of partnership. Find out more at www.prfc-gr.org.
