'Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.' Emily Dickinson.

Ahhhh, Springtime! What a glorious time of rejuvenation and renewal. The children are excited as Easter approaches, and with it comes not only chocolate, but the message of hope that we too can be made new. 

At The Salvation Army we are all about hope. In an atmosphere of dignity and respect our staff compassionately come alongside those who are struggling and share with them the glorious message of hope….that something more is possible and lives are changed.
