Through a committed relationship with the local Pathway of Hope team, built on trust and respect, an action plan is developed that includes personal aspirations and practical actions. The plan relies on assets and strengths recognizing participants can overcome barriers through a holistic approach that utilizes their inherent skills and abilities.

Bringing all the Army’s internal resources to bear, aligning them to the needs of participants, and focused on outcomes

Pathway of Hope drives a broader, renewed concept of the resources and relationships The Salvation Army can use to benefit participants. Reallocation of resources, greater operational efficiency, and increased organizational integration are key to ensuring participants receive the full benefit of assistance.

Catalyzing community collaboration in service of shared participants

The Salvation Army has a role to play in coordinating with external service providers to ensure participants have access to the services they need. Service to participants is bettered through enhanced community relationships, shared perspective among stakeholders, and coordinated operations and information.
