Helping people find help
Yuba/Sutter Corps works with other agencies in the community for maximum impact.
The Salvation Army Yuba Sutter (Calif.) Corps participated in the United Way Community Fair on September 10, which aimed to inform residents of services offered by local agencies that receive funding through United Way.
Many people came by The Salvation Army booth seeking help with shelter or rehabilitation, along with some donors who thought highly of the Army’s programs, and others who had received help in the past and expressed their gratitude. Numerous children attended, and they received invitations and flyers for the corps’ weekly youth programs and church services.
“Connecting with other agencies is crucial, as resources are diminishing and the number of those in need continues to rise,” said Chaya Galicia, development assistant at the Yuba Sutter Corps. “Organizations strive to work together in our community, to maximize the impact we have on this increasing population. As The Salvation Army collaborates with other agencies, we are able to see the gaps in service and attempt to fill those gaps through programs we offer. And we offer so many great programs!”
The fair provided an opportunity to get The Salvation Army’s name in front of the residents of Yuba Sutter, reminding them that the Army is Changing Lives, 365 days a year.
