Hope for the future

Spring, glorious Spring! The sun is shining in Vancouver and the cherry blossoms burst forth displaying their praise!

The dark days of Winter are gone and our hope is renewed by the promise of sunshine, warmer weather and glorious Summer days. Though we haven't seen the latter yet, we know they are coming and we wait in eager anticipation.

The same can be true in our own lives and none of us are immune to it. We may have been experiencing the darkness and depths of a winter season that seems endless.
 
Unexpected job loss, tragedy, illness, death of a loved one. The list can go on and on.
 
Friends, be assured that there is hope. Help and support are available and you are not alone in your journey!  
 
At The Salvation Army we are all about hope, coming alongside those who are in the midst of difficult circumstances and sharing with them the life changing message of hope…that something more is possible!

If you are in need of assistance, contact The Salvation Army in your community or visit us at salvationarmy.ca
