Community Assistance

Throughout the year, The Salvation Army of Camas/Washougal works to help families meet their daily needs.

Last year, the salvation army helped more than 600,000 people throughout the northwest. 

Providing resources and assistance to families in our community year-round

We offer community assistance in areas ranging from rent and utilities support to food and clothing assistance and a hot shower in our new building that includes a hygiene center.

Rent and Utility Assistance

Many families struggle with paying for rent and utilities to keep their families sheltered and warm. This is where The Salvation Army can help. When a family faces a hardship, the Salvation Army may be able to offer financial assistance for helping with bills or basic needs. We help struggling families and individuals avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by supplementing their income with utility, rent and other vital payments. This assistance often becomes the difference between shelter and eviction, between maintaining honest work and turning to an illegal means of getting money and between keeping kids in one place and moving them out of their home and onto the streets. Through local and national partnerships, we offer many resources to qualified families.

For more information about what rent and utility assisance are available in your area, contact The Salvation Army in Washougal at (360) 835-3171

Food and Clothing Assistance

Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice between heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head. We offer food to all of those in need. Our new building includes an opportunity to come in and get a food box, free bread, and more. We also have a Blessing Room, a free thrift shop that offers clothing and household goods. Our office hours are listed below.

Hygiene Center

Our Hygiene Center is open for those in our community without homes. You can get a hot shower and hygiene kit during office hours listed below.

Our Office Hours:

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 AM - 4 PM

Christmas Assistance

The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. Among the many programs provided by The Salvation Army, those that particularly bring joy at Christmas are the Adopt-a-Family/Senior, Angel Tree and Holiday Food Baskets. Together, these programs help to ensure that hundreds of lower-income families in our community have an opportunity to receive gifts, have gifts for their children and funds to purchase food for a Christmas dinner celebration.
