An international movement and an evangelical branch of the Christian Church that expresses its ministry through a range of spiritual and social programmes.
Our operational headquarters for New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa is in Wellington, New Zealand
The Salvation Army is a vast organisation with many expressions, but our specific collection of services is called ASARS: Addictions, Supportive Accommodation and Reintegration Services. We also incorporate Hospice Marlborough, which fits in well with our health and housing portfolio. The National Office for ASARS is in Auckland, which serves our many centres and over 500 staff across Aotearoa.
ASARS exists to work with people experiencing issues in their lives which cause them to be marginalised and excluded from society, including people experiencing addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling; people who are homeless or in need of emergency accommodation; people being reintegrated into society after release from prison; and people requiring palliative care.
The Salvation Army in Aotearoa New Zealand has a strong connection with the Pacific Islands, and in ASARS we provide support for similar addiction treatment services in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.
