Heart of the Ministry
“Heart to God, Hand to Man.”
Case management is a critical role in the operations of The Salvation Army of La Crosse County. Case managers assist residents through their mental, physical, and spiritual barriers in hopes of building stronger, more resilient individuals who will then have the skills to overcome challenges.
The spiritual assistance offered during a resident’s time here is directed by our Chaplin, Major Kim, and through pastoral care outreach. Chaplaincy helps reach into the spiritual side of every individual and show, by example, that God is loving and that it is never too late to look up and be strengthened. The purpose of pastoral care is to encourage individuals to see their own value, know they are seen and appreciated by others, that He loves them, and that they are not judged by their worst day, but given a chance to get a leg up in society.
Major Kim works closely with our pastoral care volunteers, Kael and Tim, who offer their time during the week to talk with residents interested in this direction of spiritual care. Major Alan also offers bible study on Thursday nights to residents, staff, and community members. Learn more here.
