When I left home my mind was so cluttered – why did this happen to me? What role did I play in this? The questions were endless. What about my child? Now what do we do?
That’s when we came to the Salvos.
And what a difference they made to my life and my son’s life.
Louise, my Salvo carer, was excellent in helping me work through strategies of how to moveforward. The fog slowly began to dissipate.
My son was having nightmares. Salvo Care provided resources for him ... helped find a school … got him on a Salvos Camp … interacting with other children … some swimming lessons … even music therapy.
I still have questions. I’m still so tired. But I’ve started putting resumes together and am looking for work.
They helped us find a place to live. They provided me with dishes, furniture, beds, bikes, linen, even the TV cabinet. And at Christmas, they helped again. We’d moved in just before the big day and, thanks to the Salvos, we had things to celebrate Christmas with.
The Salvos have been just wonderful. They’ve helped us so much.
I feel safe here. I feel settled. I’m in a healing place now.
I hope one day I can give back. I really do. I want to.”
