Salvation Army

DECATUR, Ill. (WAND)- The Salvation Army of Decatur & Macon County celebrates eight families as they graduate from their Pathway of Hope (POH) program. 

Pathway of Hope is a program that supports single parents and their families, as well as individuals with immediate physical needs with supportive goal setting and regular support to help break the cycle of poverty for multiple generations.

The program helps struggling individuals set goals of consistency and improvement for different areas in life like shelter, rent, utilities, employment, education, and childcare.

After nearly nine months, eight families in the program are ready to celebrate how far they have come on the road to self-sufficiency.

A graduation ceremony will take place on Thursday, in the Salvation Army Community Room.
