Thank you for the article regarding Prairie Pride Coalition's support of the Salvation Army of McLean County. I have volunteered at Salvation Army Safe Harbor homeless shelter for over 10 years, and I have seen how supervisors, case managers, and staff interact with those who come seeking help.
Without exception all on the staff are open, welcoming and caring toward persons who are LGBTQ. I am proud to volunteer with them as they serve without discrimination all in need in our community. Our Salvation Army chapter clearly follows Jesus who made it a point time and again to reach out with compassion and love to those marginalized by society. May we all do the same!
