Salvation Army Of Harrisburg

Relocation and Expansion Project

Project Grant:

The Salvation Army Harrisburg had long outgrown its old 17,000 square foot facility on Green Street in downtown Harrisburg. Faced with demands to expand and a host of relocation options, the Salvation Army fortunately decided to remain within City limits—building a beautiful new 42,000 square foot building on a spacious (and long blighted) site at 29th and Rudy Streets. After an ambitious capital and planning campaign, which saw broad community support, the Salvation Army completed construction in the fall of 2019. The new building boasts state of the art food preparation, classroom, storage and recreational space. This gorgeous new facility will enable the Army to provide more efficient and expanded educational, nutritional, recreational and spiritual programming to the over 25,000 clients it serves on an annual basis.

AMOUNT LEVARAGED: $12.5 million. In addition to the grant from Impact Harrisburg, the Salvation Army was able to contribute resources from their national office, from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (RACP), from private investors (New Market Tax credits) and from a broad spectrum of civic and charitable donations.
