Salvation Army LGBTQ support

I wasn’t expecting this, but it turns out the Salvation Army runs some programs to assist LGBTQ needs for shelter, substance abuse, food, job training, and teen suicide prevention.

I don’t know if they do much in terms of requiring anything like adherence to certain doctrinal positions. I have served on their mobile food canteen before and never saw anything like that, so I am doubting it.

If you or anyone you know is in need of assistance, this could be a resource.

I am impressed!  I probably have to check into them to see if I can help as a volunteer!

I've always supported the Salvation Army because they filled our tank with heating oil when we needed it. Plus I have much respect for their bell ringers who stand outside in the worst of weather. I usually stick my dollar in the kettle and ask if I can take a turn ringing the bell, which they usually do with a smile. Give it a shot sometime, it's not as easy as you might think.  ;)


PS: I'm aware of their history, but where would we be if we didn't give people, and groups, opportunities to learn and change? Yeah, I'm looking at you, Chick-Fil-A!  :laugh:

I appreciate your charitable attitude toward the fast food chain (whose name I won't repeat). I would like to hope they can reform.

They better reform quickly, we're going by one of their few UK locations in Scotland in a couple weeks, and plan on gesticulating wildly with our middle fingers, or perhaps ordering some food and just driving off.  :laugh:
