2019-07-09 16:57:46My name is Brian, and I would like to start off by saying thanks for places like yours that helps people in need. I am 41 years of age, that just so have happened to fall on rough terms, that stems from negligence on my part. I am a hard worker and in desperate need of a job, and I just need a place to lay my head until I get back on my feet.

2019-07-09 16:57:46Just keep doing what their doing, their helping others
2019-08-03 04:55:31More outreach needed. When someone calls and is told only the Salvation Army can help and you can't bring your dogs, then hangs up, that doesn't help.
