Northern Division: Serving every county in Minnesota and North Dakota


You need to talk. We’re here to listen. No matter what you are facing, you’re not alone. Salvation Army officers – ordained pastors – are available for individual counseling. We also offer group counseling, visitation for older adults, care for adults with special needs, and guidance for people experiencing certain difficulties in life, such as addiction or incarceration.

Pastoral Counseling

Our officers are ordained pastors and 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.

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 for seniors, group prayer meetings or counseling for specific difficulties. Contact your local service center to ask about weekly programming.

Adult Day Centers

When you or your loved one needs just a little help with day-to-day tasks, our adult day centers in Maplewood and Rochester can help. The centers are supportive, daytime environments for adults 18 years and older who are coping with a variety of issues or disabilities. Our trained staff and social workers develop a plan of care for each individual. Learn more about our adult day centers.

Addiction Recovery

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.

Correctional Care

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 through our correctional services program.
