Pathway of Hope

Breaking the cycle of crisis


The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army’s history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.


The Pathway of Hope approach includes:

Catalyzing community collaboration in service of shared clients


Moving families from crises and vulnerability to stability and eventually self-sufficiency, tracking family progress along the way


Bringing all The Salvation Army’s internal resources to bear, aligned to the goals of clients

Focus on hope as a measured outcome, which represents the distinctly relational, spiritual outcome that The Salvation Army seeks in the work it does
