Hopeless Find Hope Through The Pathway Of Hope

Robert was out of work due to debilitating osteoporosis, his utilities were past due, he had no long or short term disability and no ability to keep his insurance, foreclosure on his home was imminent. With a family of four, including one child with mental and physical disabilities, Robert's family was in desperate need of help and renewed hope. "I thank God for The Salvation Army and the Pathway of Hope," said Robert. "Our family is together, our home is secure and we have a plan for self-sufficiency."
