 The Salvation Army thanks all businesses and individuals who either sponsored a hole or made a contribution to our Hope FORE Children charity golf tournament at Eisenhower Golf Course! Each night, approximately 32 homeless children and their families stayed at The Salvation Army Shelter & Services at RJ Montgomery. With the money raised through the tournament, we are able to provide a nourishing meal and warm bed to sleep for every child in our shelter for an entire month. PLUS, due to your generous support, we can also provide a scholarship for 10 children in need to attend our week-long High Peak Summer Camp in Estes Park. Please click on the Featured Supporters tab above to see some of the gnerous supporters!

Success Stories

You Allowed Ruth to Transform Her Life

After being a successful wife, mother and businesswoman for more than 50 years – Ruth developed alcoholism and her textbook life began to fall apart. Before she knew it, she was unemployed, homeless and estranged from her family. That’s when she discovered the helping hands of The Salvation Army.

Ruth checked into The Salvation Army Shelter at RJ Montgomery Center and began the process of reconstructing her broken life. Within a few months, she was employed and eligible for a “New Beginning” in The Salvation Army’s transitional housing program.

“New Beginnings was a gift from God,” Ruth said. “The program allowed me to transform myself. It was hard work and sometimes required long hours,” she added. “But I took advantage of every opportunity it provided.”

The Salvation Army gave Ruth the stability she needed to attend AA classes, work, and save money. Upon completion of the two-year Salvation Army program, Ruth moved into an apartment and reconnected with her children and two grandchildren. This spring, Ruth is celebrating her third year of being clean and sober – and you should be celebrating with her because you helped make this possible!

“I can’t even express how much The Salvation Army has done for me – you (The Salvation Army along with people like you) allowed me to change my life!” Ruth says. “Thank you.”
