Allen and Melinda Johnson have become the heads of the Charlottesville Salvation Army.

The Johnsons, both majors, come to Charlottesville with more than 25 years experience as commanding officers of local Salvation Army Corps, most recently in Concord, N.C. Former assignments in Virginia included Harrisonburg and a term in Charlottesville while training.

The two will supervise programs including an emergency shelter, transitional housing, daily soup kitchen, emergency and disaster services, homeless intervention, thrift store, a childcare center and Christmas assistance programs.

It is customary for the Salvation Army to reassign its officers every two to four years. Capts. Dan and Mary Matthews, the last pair of commanding officers, are being transferred to the army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center in Birmingham, Ala.
