Currently in Victoria, The Salvation Army provides shelter beds, a seniors’ facility along with transitional housing, but plan on adding two more programs to help people in the community where there is need.
Major Brian Venables shared with a capacity crowd of 250 people at the annual Salvation Army luncheon, held at the Delta Ocean Pointe that a new addiction-treatment program is in place in the group’s downtown facility.
“It is operated in our Johnson Street property, which will give people from other shelters and other parts of the city access to some care and some treatment for battling their addiction. It’s a new addition the Salvation Army has undertaken to make sure that there is some addiction care in the community at the street level.” The other program is an addiction-treatment program for teenaged girls, which Major Venables stated has been in the works for some time now.
Stay posted with what’s to come …
