“On a winter night three years ago, I was living in a condemned apartment with no heat. My brother told me about the Salvation Army and the food, relief from weather, and counseling they offered. They (The Salvation Army) never turned on me, and that saved me. I have given myself up to The Lord and I now have my life back.” #StoriesOfHope
