Salvation Army of Victoria plans new Life Skills room

Room comes after City Of Victoria grant

Salvation Army 9 17

Earlier this month, the Salvation Army of Victoria got a $5,000 grant from the City Of Victoria. Captain Kenny Jones, Salvation Army of Victoria commanding officer, then used that grant to turn a storage room into a new Life Skills classroom. Captain Jones told us that the classroom will be used by residents in their shelter to learn basic skills like math and hygiene so they can move back into society.

Said Captain Jones, “The folks that suffer chronic homelessness or folks that have not been in the workforce in a few years struggle with just basic life skills. We’ll be able to bring in folks to teach them. I will be teaching a class. ”

Captain Jones tells us the Life Skills room at the Salvation Army of Victoria was completed in late August. Classes start in early October.
