Branching off from the original Salvation Army based in England, the
Volunteers of America became the first religious - social - welfare
organization devoted to aiding the needy in the United States.
Founded in 1896 in New York City's Bowery section by Ballington
Booth (a son of the Salvation Army's founder, William Booth) and
his wife, Maud, it now serves nearly 1 million people each year
through its more than 400 programs in about 200 US communities.|
