VICTORIA, Texas—This is National Salvation Army Week. How does the local Salvation Army help our community?

Salvation Army Of Victoria commanding officer Captain Kenny Jones told me their men’s shelter is not just there to give them a place to stay overnight, but to help them gain employment and locate permanent housing. Captain Kenny says they help people with rent and utilities, and for the first time this year, they help people pay their mortgages, especially if their work hours are cut due to COVID-19 concerns. The Salvation Army’s Family Store now gives local income families a unique shopping experience. The Salvation Army mobile kitchen is at the ready to help local first responders in disaster situations, and Captain Kenny added that the Salvation Army gives spiritual support through its church and it’s ministries.
