Newfound confidence

Salvation Army centres provide welfare services, support and education

The Reporter - Issue 2, 2014

Inside this issue:

  • For many people on the breadline, the future extends only as far as the next meal. Before coming to The Salvation Army, single mother Moana (not pictured), didn’t sleep most nights because of the worry of how she would feed her children, including an autistic son. In this Reporter, find out how The Salvation Army budgeting service helped Moana fine-tune the family budget and clear her debt.
  • In rural Feilding, isolated people and those caught up in the court system are finding a new direction and a newfound self-confidence by participating in The Salvation Army Feilding Community Life Skills Garden project
  • After the Christchurch earthquakes, it was estimated the city needed 1000 extra workers to rebuild its infrastructure over the next five to seven years. The Salvation Army Education and Employment service pitched in by setting up ‘U Build 4 the Rebuild' - an initiative to train and qualify local unemployed people for roading and underground infrastructure work.

  • Positive Lifestyle Programmes have become a mainstay of The Salvation Army’s social services. Find out how our assistance helps clients deal with the emotional obstacles that inhibit them from coping with life’s challenges and achieving stability in their lives.
