Tony came to The Salvation Army from prison. He didn’t want to be alone anymore and knew he needed to be on a different path. So he told his parole officer he’d give our program a try for 30 days.

After the 30 days were up, he didn’t want to leave. The Salvation Army cared about him and he could feel it.

He knew we could help him lead a different kind of life and stay out of prison.

Here’s the rest of Tony’s powerful story, created by the talented Jason Leighton in our MultiMedia Ministries office:
