About the Del Oro Division
The Del Oro Division is part of the Western USA Territory (THQ),
one of the Army’s four U.S. geographic service areas. Divisional
Headquarters for the Del Oro Division is located in Sacramento and
is comprised of portions of Northern California and Northern
Nevada. The division is further divided into geographic areas where
services and ministry are provided. These locations, often called
Community Centers or Corps, are led by a local leader. Additional
programs are conducted in outlying areas (more remote areas) by
dedicated staff and volunteers. It is only through this highly
complex structure that The Salvation Army can Do the Most
Good and meet human needs in His name. Eighty-two cents of
every dollar the Army spends is used to support those services in
5,000 communities nationwide, and as a branch of the Christian
Church, the ultimate goal of all programs is the spiritual
regeneration of all people. For more information please
