Emergency Disaster Services

T he Salvation Army in Waukesha-- serving Waukesha County exclusively since its founding in1894-- gratefully accepts your gifts of volunteer time and financial resources. They enable us to do vital work, in your name, to help those most in need.

Our Programs and Services

Our annual budget for Doing the Most Good here in Waukesha County, is over 2-million dollars. Our charitable work helps those Most In Need, and means that government is called to do that much less through taxes and fees.
