The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope’s goal is to prevent the epidemic of homelessness at its root. Rather than treating the symptoms of homelessness, the Salvation Army’s pivotal shift approach wants to solve the long-term issue. We do this by helping families overcome barriers like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education. By doing so, we can break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability. This helps lead families down a path of increased stability and ultimately self-sufficiency- a Pathway of Hope that will profoundly affect generations to come.
The Pathway of Hope approach includes:
Catalyzing community collaboration in service of shared clients
Moving families from crises and vulnerability to stability and eventually self-sufficiency, tracking family progress along the way
Bringing all The Salvation Army’s internal resources to bear, aligned to the goals of clients
Focus on hope as a measured outcome, which represents the distinctly relational, spiritual outcome that The Salvation Army seeks in the work it does
