About Us 800x300


Launched out of a previous work in Kitselas, Cedarvale and Meanskinisht, the Terrace Corps was established in 1959. Over the past 60 years the Corps has grown, moving as the need arose to bigger facilities. We currently have 2 locations with a vibrant thrift store and an active church, Emergency Disaster Service vehicle and numerous programs to meet the needs of this beautiful northern region.

Rick and Sarah Apperson have been the Corps Officers since June 2018. Sarah was born in Alberta and lived for many years in Smithers, BC. Rick is from Tennessee. Married in 1995 they served with another organization in Russia and Croatia before Rick began working for the Salvation Army in Smithers in 2006. They love Terrace and all the community has to offer.
