About Caring Magazine

Caring is a digital publication of The Salvation Army, all about ideas on doing good. We want our readers to know—even though life is busy—people just like you are doing good right where they are. We want to inspire you to take action to make the world a better, brighter place. And along the way, we aim to highlight the best ways The Salvation Army is fighting for good.

Good starts with you.

And you’re here because you want to make a tangible, positive impact on your community.

You notice the issues facing each one of us. You see the increasing encampments of people experiencing homelessness. You hear about food-insecure children who depend on getting food for the weekend each Friday at school and know what art and music offer a community. You want to see families healed of substance abuse and witness those in recovery find self-sustaining work.

Like you, we too feel weighed down by evils of this world. We know what it’s like to be overwhelmed by what needs to be done—and to wonder if it’s simply too much.

Good starts with each of us.

It starts in our own families and homes. Good can be found in the relationships we nurture, in the tiny humans we raise and in the communities we build.

We’re there too. The Salvation Army fights for good in every zip code in America (and more than 130 countries) in unique ways, specific to what the community needs.

We served more than 23 million Americans last year fighting hunger, homelessness and substance abuse. We made sure some 260,000 kids enjoyed summer camp and more than 1.3 million people were visited—whether a patient or an inmate. We worked hard to see that nearly 3 million people enjoyed the holidays.

Caring, a publication of The Salvation Army, is dedicated to helping you do good right where you are.
