Just a year ago, if you would’ve asked the experts where the U.S. was headed, they were certain of one thing: the country was beelining toward a recession.
In fact, a Bloomberg economic model said the odds of a U.S. recession in 2023 were 100 percent. Not 99 percent. There was no possible chance an economic slowdown was avoidable.
So, how are we doing a year later? Well, you could say those grim forecasts were a little off-target. The U.S. economy, according to all the key indicators, is humming right along.
And yet, for many Americans, prosperity is ever elusive. And there’s still unmet need in every zip code across the U.S.
The Salvation Army has its work cut out for them, especially as we work to meet the needs of the whole person—body, mind and soul.
And that’s exactly what we’re covering in the episodes of this podcast to come. We’ll be taking a look at the state of the issues, exploring The Salvation Army’s work through the lens of its seven primary areas of service.
