Among the world's 35 wealthiest countries, the United States has the second-highest child poverty rate. And children who live their lives in poverty are 32 times more likely to remain in poverty. Which means the epidemic is passed down from one generation to the next, over and over again. The cost to those families who are trapped in the cycle of poverty is staggering. Luckily, The Salvation Army created the Pathway of Hope Program to come alongside these families and carve a pathway out of poverty.
Pathway of Hope is a Salvation Army approach to create a path out of poverty. We provide targeted services to families with children under the age of 18, both traditional and non-traditional family structures, that desire to break the cycle of crisis. Through case management, we focus on a family’s capabilities and raise hope by empowering them to overcome barriers on the path to stability. Families set their own goals, and we partner with them to provide the resources needed to accomplish each one.
Children's Care Management offers comprehensive assistance to parents who struggle to care for their children and teens due to a chronic health or behavioral health conditions. Nearly 200 children and their parents are being served in the Empire State Division at 10 Salvation Army locations helping parents receive the health and mental health services their children need to be successful in; home, school and community.
The Salvation Army's visitation services provide safe opportunities for parents to visit with their children who are in foster care. Two sites are equipped to provide intermittent and continuous supervision of family visits. Transportation is provided for children to and from visits.
Giving everyone, young and old, a place to celebrate with others is a simple thing that goes a long way toward helping people during the holidays.
Many Salvation Army locations conduct community coat drives in the fall to provide coats to those in need all winter long.
