The Salvation Army of Bryan-College Station

The Brazos Valley Needs Hope

The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative marks a pivotal shift from treating the symptoms of poverty to preventing the epidemic at its root. By helping families overcome barriers like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability, leading families instead down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self–sufficiency – a Pathway
of Hope that will profoundly affect generations to come.

Pathway of Hope is:

  • An initiative to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty
  • Addressing the root causes of poverty in addition to our history of compassionate serving
  • Using evidence–based interventions

Current property and programs are unable to address the underlying issues of generational poverty and homelessness across Bryan–College Station.

The Pathway of Hope Approach Includes:

Catalyzing community collaboration in service
of shared clients

Bringing all The Salvation Army’s internal resources to bear, aligned to the goals of clients

Moving families from crises and
vulnerability to stability and
eventually self–sufficiency, tracking family progress along the way

Focus on hope as a measured
outcome, which represents the
distinctly relational, spiritual
outcome that The Salvation Army
seeks in the work it does

Hope For Tomorrow Begins With You

The Salvation Army of Bryan–College Station has identified the need to expand and modernize the Cavitt facility in order to align with the Pathway of Hope initiative, designed to not only treat the symptoms of poverty, but break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability. The Pathway of Hope initiative paves the way for individuals and families to achieve their goals through securing stable jobs, housing, and becoming self–sufficient, contributing members of our community.
