The Salvation Army Mission Statement is “The Salvation Army exists to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the communities of our world.” 
In keeping with this mission statement, a study commissioned in 1987 resulted in a group of visionaries pioneering the development of a more holistic form of end-of-life care, particularly for those with cancer or AIDS. In 1992, with the transition of the Salvation Army’s Sunset Lodge for seniors, Agapé Hospice was established with three resident rooms and the distinction of being the first free-standing hospice facility of its kind. Today Agapé has grown to 2 wings with 10 resident rooms in each wing.
