The Salvation Army has been operating its Stokes County Service Unit since 1985. It runs in conjunction with the Stokes County Department of Social Services, King Outreach Ministry and East Stokes Outreach Ministry to provide emergency assistance such as rent and utility payments and emergency lodging. Hundreds of Stokes County families are helped with emergency needs each year by The Salvation Army, a United Fund participating agency.
