Pathway of Hope Initiative Receives $750K State Grant to Combat Poverty in Central & Eastern PA

The Salvation Army of Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware is the recipient of a $750,000 Department of Education grant from the State of Pennsylvania to support its Pathway of Hope initiative. The announcement was made at a press conference held at The Salvation Army of York on October 3, 2018. Rolled out in central Pennsylvania in 2015, Pathway of Hope focuses on the long-term goals of self-sufficiency of impoverished families, intended to break the cycle of crisis and intergenerational poverty. Families who are motivated and committed to taking the necessary steps to improve their lives, work with a Salvation Army case manager for social and spiritual support. They are also connected with services for jobs, health, housing, childcare, education and legal services.
