    The Salvation Army's Wisconsin and Upper Michigan Division is located in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. It is home to 26 Worship and Community Centers (Corps), 67 service extension units, a summer camp, as well as multiple homeless shelters, thrift stores, and food pantries. Service extension units are branches of The Salvation Army in communities where Corps are not located but service is provided by committees of volunteers. The Wisconsin and Upper Michigan Division, which we refer to as the WUM Division, has over 700 employees who are passionate about supporting the mission of The Salvation Army, which is to “preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.” We work hard to make that happen each day, no matter what role we serve. And those roles are many: pastors, social workers, accountants, daycare teachers, fundraising professionals, shelter workers, human resources, IT, fitness trainers, lifeguards, store clerks, and a host of other areas of service.
