Who We Are

Echelon Atlanta was founded in 2017.

Echelon is a community of diverse young adults collectively rising up to serve The Salvation Army through fellowship and networking, donations and fundraising, and service and volunteering. Echelon was founded in 2010 in Dallas, Texas and has since been branded as the National Young Adult Auxiliary of The Salvation Army.

This group supports efforts to provide shelter, food, clothing, and countless other services to thousands of men, women, and children in need. They engage in opportunities to connect with like-minded people who want to get out into the community and just do good work!
