The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope is an initiative that shifts traditional social service activities from treating the symptoms of poverty to preventing the epidemic at its root. By helping families overcome barriers like unemployment, unstable housing, and a lack of education, we can break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability, leading families instead down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency – a Pathway of Hope that will profoundly affect generations to come.
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.
