Volunteer opportunity: Salvation Army's Chaplaincy program needs you

WAUWATOSA -- The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County is hosting an information session on Thursday, November 17th for individuals interested in joining the chaplaincy program.

The information session will take place at Milwaukee West Worship and Community Center, 1645 N. 25th St. from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Those who attend will learn about the requirements to be a chaplain, find out when The Salvation Army’s next training will take place and hear from current chaplains.

The Salvation Army’s Chaplaincy Program, which launched in May 2015, is a community partnership. The chaplains, who serve as volunteers for The Salvation Army, host vigils and prayer walks. They are called by Milwaukee Police Department to crime scenes and homes to be with families of suicide and homicide victims. Salvation Army chaplains offer emotional support to crime victims, families of the accused and police officers alike.
