History of Salvation Army in Latvia starts in 1923 when it was initially established in Jelgava. The work flourished for 20 years and spread over the country, starting churches and saving lives through its social work. In 1990 The Salvation Army was allowed to open up official work in Latvia again. Today in Latvia the organization has: 23 Officers (church leaders) and 396 members; 14 churches, 7 social institutions; 11 soup kitchens and more.
