Salvation Army Centre of Hope
The Salvation Army has reached a significant milestone and broke ground for construction of their new Centre of Hope, on Springdale Street in St. John’s Centre. The Centre will provide 20 affordable, supported housing units, a health clinic, food bank, mental health services and drug addiction programs for some of the most marginalized members of society.
At the ceremony, Major Rene Loveless, said "Some might have thought that this day would never come, but here we are, and it's a wonderful day. Today our hearts are bursting with gratitude as we reflect on the hard work, dreams and perseverance of our organization, our partners and stakeholders that will now transform the Centre of Hope from a concept into a reality."
Congratulations to Divisional Commander, Lt. Colonel Eddie Vincent, Major Hedley Bungay, Director of the Centre, and Social Worker extraordinaire - Denise Miller and their whole team!
Their work is the epitome of LOVE and HOPE! Thank you for this gift to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador!
