Breakfast and Lunch Print E-mail

Lunch is served at the Modesto Corps Monday through Friday from noon until 1pm. All are welcome, no forms or fees required. Simply bring your appetite!


Coffee, doughnuts and hospitality are served at Sally's Place, our drop-in center at the Modesto Corps, from 8:30am-11am, Monday through Friday. Come, get something to eat, relax, play cards, and spend time with others. A full breakfast is provided by various churches and community groups on Saturday mornings from 8-9am at the same location as our daily lunches.

Utilities Print E-mail

The Salvation Army has several programs to help with those who are facing a crisis situation with utilities. Financial difficulties happen; you lost your job, lost your financial support, or are facing a large funeral bill which means you can't pay your utilities. If you have received a 15 day or 48 hour notice of disconnection of service from PG&E, MID, TID, City of Modesto, or City of Ceres, we can provide relief.

To qualify for assistance with PG&E, you must:

  • Provide evidence of financial hardship which means you are facing extraordinary expenses that go beyond monthly bills, which must be paid in cash.
  • Not be receiving any housing subsidy or Section 8 funds.
  • have an income $5 more than your monthly rent or mortgage to qualify.
  • apply only once within an 18 month period.

MID, TID, City of Modesto and Ceres have different requirements so please call 521-6249 for more information Mondays or Wednesdays.


They’re coming to us for a safe place to play. To learn, to grow into young men and women of character. These are kids from families with parents who worry about them after school — some of them might even be your neighbors. The Red Shield Center in Modesto provides what kids need most: guidance, security, friendship.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the Universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
