The Salvation Army Northern Division is taking bold and exciting steps toward improving the lives of children and families across Minnesota and North Dakota.
Through your generosity, we’re helping at-risk families get out of poverty, and stay out. We’re teaching children experiencing homeless how to cope with chronic stress. We’re taking inner-city kids up north and to the countryside, showing them that there’s another world beyond the concrete jungle.
These and other stories can be found in the 2017 edition of Northern Highlights magazine, which provides an in-depth look at the people, children and families you’ve impacted by donating your time and money to The Salvation Army Northern Division.
