The Salvation Army in Imperial Valley serves El Centro with family services, a shelter, thrift store, family store, youth programs, and worship. There is a service center at the corps to assist those in genuine need with emergency food boxes, vouchers for clothing and other important items from the Salvation Army Thrift Store.  Hot meals for needy seniors and food for outreach programs are prepared in the center's kitchen.

The Salvation Army has created programs to fit the profile of its neighborhood, including Hispanic-themed dance classes, singing groups, Bible study, youth groups, scouting programs and outreach ministries.  The Corps also operates Salvation Army Thrift store in El Centro and Brawley.  The El Centro Thrift Store holds  worship service on Sundays and Wednesday evenings. The services often include a hot meal brought from the Corps. The Salvation Army El Centro Corps Community Center serves Imperial Valley, an area with an unemployment rate of 25%, said to be the highest in the nation.
