Hope is defined as the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life. As Easter approaches, we reflect on men, women and children around metro Atlanta that believe The Salvation Army has given them Hope.
Often times our donors don’t know how much their donation impacts the people that we serve daily, so today we officially launch “Awaken Hope!” This gives us an opportunity to display how the thousands of donations we receive give hope to those in need.
During the month of April, we will display videos, letters and pictures of clients that credit The Salvation Army for changing their lives.
The letter below will give you an idea of how one of our clients was given Hope.
Years of domestic violence left Kelly addicted to drugs to ease her pain. When she finally escaped with her son, authorities took the boy from her custody.
Devastated, she entered a recovery program. By God’s grace, she cleaned up, and then regained her son. But they were now destitute.
Kelly was referred to The Salvation Army shelter, where she and her son began life over. She credits the “love and encouragement” she received here with giving her strength to change. She’s completing her degree now. “Soon”, she says, “I’ll be able to support my son on my own.”
