Pastoral Support

The Salvation Army HomeCare staff, clients and their families have access to Chaplains who are drawn from The Salvation Army Corps (Church) and have requisite qualifications for their roles as ordained or lay Ministers.

Chaplains bring a critical set of relational skills for mentoring and supporting clients and staff. And it is through this chaplaincy approach that staff, clients and their families are assisted to access the holistic support network available through the wider Salvation Army services.
