Salvation Army Celebrates its namesake, the Red Shield

The Adam W. Herbert University Center on the University of North Florida’s campus hosted the Salvation Army’s Sixth Annual Red Shield Ball Oct. 19. The Red Shield Ball was launched in 2014 in order to raise funds specifically for the organization’s homeless shelter, located at 900 West Adams Street in Downtown Jacksonville and the services provided. It has been a success since the boost in program funding began.

While at the shelter, families receive intensive case management services including crisis intervention and counseling, as well as training in personal finance, parenting skills, child development, stress management, and health and wellness advice. All the giving efforts boost the odds of success clients have impacted 7,818 individuals and families upon leaving the shelter.
