Celebrating is Important!

At The Salvation Army, we believe it is important to celebrate a person’s recovery in life.

It is important to celebrate recovery and the progress made in building happy families and healthy people.

Last year we celebrated a client graduating from our shelter in Forth Worth. Click here to read this wonderful story – Why Graduation Matters

Recently, we celebrated four individuals who went from being homeless to now having their very own homes.

This accomplishment was far from easy for our clients. They have worked so hard, sacrificed so much, and come so far that it is only fitting that we have a giant party. Celebrating is important!

  1. I love The Salvation Army for The Hand Up attitude, not just a Hand Out. I often tell clients stories of sucess that have been passed on to me through our organization to encourage them. It's much easier to believe you will come through a bad time in your life when you see people who have actually been there.
    Thanks for the updates so I can have new stories to share.
