(ALBANY, GA, NOVEMBER 15, 2010) – While many organizations are shutting down or cutting back on services, The Salvation Army is heading a collaboration of churches, civic organizations, and government agencies that are not only increasing their services to this community, but they are reaching a portion of our community in a great, new way! This day center will offer showers, laundry services, computer access, and use of phones. The day center has plans to offer more services in the future to meet the ever-growing needs here in the greater Albany area.
A Place 4 Hope is a community collaboration to support homeless and at-risk individuals and families. The Day Center’s ultimate vision is to give people coming to the organization the resources and life skills to improve their situation. This will be addressed from the onset of operation with a case management program along with access to a Life Skills Resource Center. The Resource Center will house information on services available in our area and life skills training.
