One Girl's Experience On The Run

Ana Harris, a 10 year old with curly hair and glasses – whose favorite subject is math, started coming to The Salvation Army Community Center’s After School Program in August of 2013. Most of her fellow school mates come to the Community Center as well. Here they are greeted each day by the staff, receive help with homework and participate in a number of different activities. Ana immediately comments on the counselors, “they’re nice. They express how God created the world, and it’s nice.” She likes all of the different opportunities and clubs that are offered, including Girls on the Run.
