Changes have been put in place at the Wichita Falls Salvation Army to better serve those in need whether it is a need of shelter or bodily and spiritual nourishment.
Sgts.Toby and Linda Romack took command of the Salvation Army chapter here in June and have since adjusted policies and continue to make changes to serve the homeless community and others in need in Wichita Falls.
One change underway is the length of time people can stay at the shelter as well as additions to the programs designed to help people get back on their feet.
“They stay here five nights free after the 5th night if they want to stay here longer, then they would have to get with our caseworker and their management program assessment,” Sgt. Toby Romack said. “They can stay here if they get on a program, we help them they can stay here up to 6-months.”
The program Romack is referring to is the shelter program, which consists of budget counseling, spiritual counseling, help with finding jobs and help in finding grants for those who wish to go back to school.
The Salvation Army are now seeking kettle ringers for Christmas as well as volunteers for the Angel Tree Program.
