The Salvation Army assists families in need by providing food, housing and utility assistance.
Their programs enable parents to stay with their children, even when placed in emergency shelters.
"The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination."
