YOU CAN HELP THOSE IN NEED!

The Salvation Army shield is a universal symbol of help and hope. For people in serious need, The Salvation Army is a buffer between their lives, and desperation. It's the difference between feeling that you've run out of options and getting a second chance.

In Palm Beach County, many families are suffering economic jeopardy. All it takes is a missed paycheck or two, an illness or a spouse who leaves and the family slides into homelessness, desperation and even possible dissolution. The Salvation Army Social Service programs meet the basic needs of daily life for those without the resources to do so themselves.

Ministry to the whole person - body, mind and spirit - is the hallmark of the services offered by The Salvation Army. Social Services offer aid to the community in many areas. In Palm Beach County, these areas currently include:

*Emergency Assistance *Crisis Intervention *Self-sufficiency Programs *Counseling and Budgeting *Utility Bill Assistance *Rent/Mortgage Assistance *Emergency Food Pantry *Disaster Furniture and Clothing Vouchers *Case Management *Referrals/Linkages *Assistance Securing Healthcare/Food Stamp Benefits *Local Palm Tran Reduced Fare Transportation *Other Necessities Based On Need

PATHWAY OF HOPE

The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire 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.

You’re eligible if:
* You have at least one child under the age of 18.     * You’re ready to take action to improve your life.

FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM - COMBATING HUMAN  TRAFFICKING

The Salvation Army declares war on human trafficking.
The Salvation Army Emergency Trafficking Program works alongside local law enforcement, FBI, ICE, and numerous other community partners to identify, rescue, and restore victims of forced labor and sexual exploitation. We help both foreign and domestic victims of all ages and ethnicities through our nationwide case management network. Along with giving immediate refuge and relief for victims, we take a holistic approach to healing, helping each person move from a state of victimized enslavement to God-centered self-sufficiency.

Every day in America, people are still sold into slavery.
More than 3,500 sex trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center last year.

The average entry age of American minors into the sex trade is 13 years old. Many victims are runaway girls who have already suffered sexual abuse.

Large populations, international borders, extensive ports, and large metropolitan areas are most conducive to forced human labor and sexual enslavement.

When you give to The Salvation Army, you provide funding for programs that help people escape human trafficking.

We are thankful for each of you who have joined the #FightforFreedom, fighting against human trafficking and making an impact! For additional information and resources visit www.sajustice.us or contact Hillary DeJarnett, Territorial Services Coordinator Against Human and Sex Trafficking, at Hillary.dejarnett@uss.salvationarmy.org.

A Legacy of Justice
For more than 150 years, The Salvation Army has stood firmly behind women and children subjected to organized commercial sexual exploitation. In the 1800s, we pioneered an undercover sex trafficking investigation, which directly shaped the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. By 1900, The Salvation Army had created over 100 "rescue homes" throughout London to help those fleeing prostitution. Over a century later, we remain fully committed to abolishing the sex trade from every corner of the world.

DONATE YOUR UNWANTED BUT USABLE ITEMS AND SHOP OUR FAMILY STORES

The Salvation Army has operated a "curbside" recycling program for more than 100 years. It began in the slums of 19th Century London, and continues to this day in all corners of the globe.

The Salvation Army is supported by the collection and sale of society's surplus but usable household goods. In the early days, men with push carts were sent out to collect paper and other salvage.  Horses and wagons eventually supplanted the push carts, and in turn were supplanted by the familiar Salvation Army trucks.

Today, pick up service and drop off locations collect the donations of a generous public, which fund local programs and services offered to thousands of men, women and children in your local community.
