Since 1891, the Hackensack Corps Worship, Service and Community Center has been seeking to meet the need of the residents of Bergen county.  Currently, we serve the communities of Bogota, Hackensack, Maywood, River Edge, South Hackensack and Teaneck.

The Hackensack Salvation Army has been and, with even more force, continues to be in the "change" business.  Change in the number of teens finding mentors and staying in school.  Change in the lives of people devastated by fire, flooding and local disasters.  Change in the violence plaguing our neighborhoods.  Change in the lives of families torn apart by drug and alcohol addiction.  We accomplish this by addressing the whole person - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Whether it's embracing the destitute, uplifting the abused or abandoned, training and mentoring the disadvantaged, providing character building programs for youth, or assisting the displaced or elderly, The Salvation Army's goal remains the same:  serving the most people, meeting the most needs, DOING THE MOST GOOD!

Through a variety of programs, opportunities for worship and services, we believe that you will find a welcoming environment.  All are free to join our programs and worship services where we strive to be the encouragement that people need in our present society.

Our services are currently held in the Multipurpose room at the Hackensack United Methodist Church - 400 Summit Avenue, Hackensack, NJ 07601

Sunday:  Holiness Meeting 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Tuesday: Prayer Meeting & Sunday School 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please take a moment to browse our website, write to us, call us or just show up!

God bless you,

Lieutenant Amarilis Ayala - Corps Officer
Lieutenant Danielle Bender - Associate Corps Officer
