John Frisch, Sacramento Advisory Board Member


“The Salvation Army is such an incredible organization. People just respond to the Army and to the people it helps. To see children and families being helped on a daily basis makes all of the work we put into this worth it.”

John, Sacramento Transitional Housing Center Client


“This was an opportunity to get back on my feet. They help you so that when you go back outside the shelter, you’re ready. You can be self-sufficient. It meant a lot to me. The deal that The Salvation Army offers you, you can’t beat. This is the spot to be if you want to do something with your life.”

Loretta, Volunteer for the Reno Corps Food Assistance Program

"[At one time,] they got my son clothes and they got him fed. They gave me some food and some bread. Then over a year ago, they asked me if I wanted to help out and I said yes.  By volunteering, it’s my way of giving back. It’s really great to see the people who are truly grateful for the help they’re receiving. It’s very hard to ask for help, but when you do, there are wonderful people that will help and point you in the right direction.  The Salvation Army has done that for me.”
