"It was a great day for The Salvation Army's transitional housing program and I am so thankful for the support of the Junior Welfare League", stated Lt. Kenny Igleheart of the Salvation Army after receiving a generous $5000.00 grant from the Junior Welfare League of Rock Hill. The funds given by the Junior Welfare League will be used to purchase much needed furniture and appliances for the transitional housing units located on the property of The Salvation Army at 119 South Charlotte Ave in Rock Hill. The transitional housing program was dedicated in 2003 and this year alone has provided over 2,500 nights of safe housing for those without. The Salvation Army transitional housing program, consisting of four apartments, two (2) bedrooms each, is designed to house families that have become homeless and are in need of a helping hand in York, Chester and Lancaster Counties. The program aids families by teaming them with a Salvation Army case management specialist who helps in job skill training, personal finance management and other essential basic services neccessary for independant living.
