    HELP US REACH OUR ARKANSAS GIVES GOAL!

    ..so let’s beat last year’s goal!

    On April 6, 2017, The Salvation Army will be one of dozens of Arkansas charities participating in ArkansasGives, a one-day event coordinated by the Arkansas Community Foundation (ACF).

    How Does It Work?

    Between the hours of 8 AM- 8 PM, donors will visit ArkansasGives.org and select their favorite charity from the list of participating organizations and make a gift through the website. Each gift made through the website will be distributed directly to the organization selected.

    HERE IS HOW YOUR MONEY HAS HELPED JESSICA’S FAMILY

    Fotosearch_k1904203Jessica is one young lady who had to grow up fast.  Her mother, brothers and Jessica lived at a Salvation Army Shelter and another local shelter for families. Jessica absorbed the difficulty of her mother’s struggle to gain success and stability for the family. Jessica had her first child before finishing school and her brothers struggled in finding purpose in their family’s journey. However, the family finally was able to gain their independent housing and had a place to call “home”. Soon afterwards, Jessica’s mother died, and Jessica had to face the harsh reality of planning a funeral at age 18. As time passed, Jessica lived with an aunt who encouraged and gave as much as she could to help Jessica have hope. Jessica begins to rebuild her family again with her daughter. She is referred to the Salvation Army from a local family agency. She is working full time, caring for her daughter and expecting a son in the next 5 months. Do you try another program? Do you take the risk after such lost for so long? Jessica interviewed with POH and was willing to re-establish her home in Pathway Of Hope transitional apartments. Jessica is choosing to build stability and success for herself and her children. Her courage to face each day is amazing. When asked to give her insight into life, she softly and thoughtfully stated, “ Never give up improving your life no matter what you have experienced”.  Jessica is choosing to build stability and success for herself and her children. She has set a goal to finish her education and fulfill her dream and goal at being a nurse. Wise insight from a 19 year old single mom who sees hope in her family dreams and plans.
