Lynn's Story

Mar 22, 2018

Lynn's life spiraled out of control when she began abusing prescription medicine.

She associated herself with other drug users, it quickly began to consume her entire life. Her life was quickly reduced to a drug house where she had no motivation to do anything other get high.She couldn't seem to find a way out and had lost all motivation to do anything else.

Everything changed the night the drug house where she was staying burned down and she was arrested. Soon after the sobering reality check Lynn was introduced to The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope program.

With the help of local staff, she began holistically overhauling her life, one step at a time.  Lynn connected Lynn with staff staff on a regular basis. They established goals and set achievable deadlines. In the process Lynn also have the opportunity to rediscover her faith. The program also functions as a  a service connector to job training, health services, childcare and education, housing options, legal services, and much more.

Pathway of Hope

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.

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.
