WELCOME ABOUT THE KROC CENTER Made possible by a substantial gift from the late philanthropist Mrs. Joan Kroc, as well as the generous support of individuals, organizations and families throughout Hampton Roads, The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center is a 92,000 square-foot community center expected to serve more than 10,000 members annually. Whether you’re interested in fitness, aquatics, performing arts or worship, The Kroc Center has it all while promoting educational enrichment, life skills development, as well as both spiritual and physical wellness. The Kroc Center truly is at the HEART of the community of Hampton Roads.


Dear Kroc Family, Welcome to the New Year 2017! We have wrapped up an amazing and successful Christmas season in which we were able to bring joy to thousands of families and children; giving them a brighter hope for tomorrow. We would like to thank you – members of the Kroc Center family – who continue to bring hope and joy to men, women and children through our work at The Salvation Army.

MISSION OF THE SALVATION ARMY The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

As we begin this New Year, it is a great time to develop goals for ourselves; ones that will help the whole person (mind, body and spirit).

At The Kroc Center, we can help you and your family reach those goals and resolutions. In the book of Philippians, Paul Lieutenant India Morris Officer for Program Development gives us the following inspiration: “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” We all have the opportunity to learn from our past and focus on making each new day better than the one before. We would love to be a part of your new days in the New Year. See you at The Kroc! Captain Bill McKinley
