The Salvation Army of Olathe, KS continues construction to double the size of their family shelter, after finishing a major reconstruction of the Olathe Corps Community Center last year. This family shelter is the only homeless shelter in Johnson County, KS. The Salvation Army of Greater Kansas City began a new initiate to offer a hand-up to families caught in the cycle of poverty in 2012 - a Pathway of Hope. The Pathway of Hope is a program for families in cyclical poverty that have a desire to take action and change the course of their lives, offering a conduit to sufficiency by interjecting enhanced services through case management and strategic community partnerships. The Pathway of Hope is The Salvation Army's opportunity to provide financial education, reduce the number of barriers these families face on the path to sufficiency, and increase their hope. The target population for the Pathway of Hope is families with children - with the intention of impacting both generations. Research shows that children who grow up in poverty are 32x more likely to be in poverty as an adult. When helping a family with children reach the level of sufficiency, the impact is doubled in that two generations have been touched with one allocation of resources. After almost one year, 180 families have been screened and 68 families are enrolled in Pathway of Hope.
