The Salvation Army is focused on “doing the most good” in our community. The team at the Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas is dedicated to helping people who want and are willing to change their life for the better. The organization works to empower people to build their lives with purpose, which is why they are “Inspiring Us This Week”, and why we are proud to call them our partners! Check out this awesome story about a young mom and how a helping hand, and a lot of determination completely changed her life.
“The Salvation Army served a client this past year who had graduated college just two weeks prior. She had not yet found a job and was in danger of having her electricity turned off. She was a single mother and also in need of groceries for her and her young child. We helped her with both of her needs. This client came back in a couple of weeks later to let us know she had found a job and would soon be able to provide for her and her child. She also came to say thank you for our help and for getting her family through a very difficult situation.”
