Children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to stay in the cycle of poverty than their peers who are better off.
The Salvation Army helped me get out of poverty
The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army's history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.
The Pathway of Hope Approach Includes:
Through involvement with Pathway of Hope, families will be introduced to both Salvation Army and other services that are available within their community that offer a network of support, a sense of community, holistic programs, and spiritual guidance. Pathway of Hope is also a service connector to job training, health services, childcare and education, housing options, legal services, and much more.
