Northern Division: Serving every county in Minnesota and North Dakota


You need to talk. We’re here to listen. Community and a strong support system are central to working through the tough parts in life. No matter what you are facing, you’re not alone. We’ll help you figure out the next steps when there is no clear answer.

Salvation Army officers – ordained pastors – are available for counseling. We also offer counseling for people experiencing certain difficulties in life, such as addiction or incarceration.

Pastoral Counseling

Our officers can help you work through any season in life – spiritual or emotional. They offer advice based on God’s word and will pray with you for the strength to press on. Whether you are facing the loss of a loved one, working through a struggle in your personal faith or just need some solid advice, don’t hesitate to call.

Addiction Recovery Counseling

Drugs, alcohol, pornography and other addictions have a strangling grip that is hard to break. Our rehabilitation programs can help you break free and reclaim the hope that was once lost. The circumstances of addiction are often unthinkable, but with counseling, patience, prayer and a limitless supply of God’s love, we offer a starting point on the path to freedom from addiction.

Corrections Counseling

For men and women in prison, those about to be released or those freed after serving time, compassion can be the difference between a new life path or repeat incarceration. Our staff members minister to victims, offenders and their families. We work to restore individuals to their rightful role in society. For more information on correctional services, call Carrie Kane at 651-746-3534.

Community Care Ministry

One of the many challenges of being homebound is maintaining a sense of community. Our Community Care Ministry comes to you – friendship and encouragement right in your home. We can also visit during your stay in a hospital, nursing home or other institution. This social ministry offers visitation, celebration planning (such as birthdays or holidays) and Bible study. We care for each individual deeply and would love to spend time getting to know you.

Special Group Counseling

Many cities offer special group fellowship opportunities such as Forever 50s and group prayer meetings. Contact your local service unit to ask about weekly programming.

Adult Day Center

When you just need a little help with day-to-day tasks, the Adult Day Center can help you maintain your independence while also meeting your needs. The center is a supportive living environment for adults 18 years and older who are coping with a variety of issues. Our trained nurses and social workers will develop a plan of care just for you including physical, social and recreational activity. The centers in Maplewood and Rochester are open to adults throughout Minnesota and beyond.
