Doing the Most Good

Lt. Colonel Ivan Wild

You may be impressed by the fact that Lt. Colonel Ivan Wild is a fourth-generation member of the Salvation Army. But that’s only because you haven’t met his wife, Lt. Colonel Jennifer Wild – a fifth-generation Salvationist.

They have dedicated their lives to an organization that does many more things behind the scenes than many people are aware of. In Arizona alone, the Salvation Army serves about a million meals to hungry families each year with emergency food boxes, congregate meals, and home-delivered meals.

Salvation Army shelters are more than just putting a “head on a bed.” They provide meals and basic material needs while clients work closely with case managers to access community resources to increase household income and locate permanent housing opportunities … helping clients to become self-sufficient.

They also provide emergency disaster services, and no-fee adult rehabilitation centers that help people fight substance abuse and return to their communities as contributing members.
