    MARATHON, FL (March 29, 2021).  After Hurricane Irma, in September 2017, devastated much of the Florida Keys, The Salvation Army stepped in as a funder providing over $2,000,000 to help repair, rebuild and recover more than 400 families in Monroe County alone. Assistance to Florida residents across the state totaled more than $7,000,000.

    Today, The Salvation Army is announcing expanded Social Services, reaching throughout the Florida Keys.  The Salvation Army has had an established office in Key West for many years; however, we are now extending our social services to the Middle and Upper Keys, reaching from Big Pine Key to Key Largo.  Currently, funding is available for utilities assistance and various other emergency needs.

    In addition, The Salvation Army has an initiative called Pathway of Hope that will be offered to a small number of families throughout the Keys who qualify and are willing to enter and commit to a long-term action plan designed to break the cycle of crisis and enable a path out of inter-generational poverty.

    Potential candidates for the Pathway of Hope initiative will be a family with responsibility for at least one child under the age of 18.  This may be a single-parent home, two-parent home, grandparent(s) raising grandchildren, parents expecting to be reunited with a child(ren) in foster care, or an extended family including a minor child or children.

    The Salvation Army developed the Pathway of Hope initiative in 2010 with today’s economic and social context in mind. Approximately one in six Americans live in poverty. The pandemic has created higher unemployment rates and life-changing situations, putting more and more families in financial, physical, emotional and spiritual crises.

    For more information about assistance in Monroe County, call 813-892-3342 or email Loretta.Geotis@uss.salvationarmy.org.
