You’ve probably heard the term “pandemic poverty.”
Maybe you were lucky and were able to work from home when the pandemic took hold of our communities.
Or, you may know the reality of that poverty more intimately with the loss of a job, loss of income, loss of a way to make ends meet at all.
The Salvation Army has seen the reality firsthand as we’ve served more than 31 million Americans this past year. That’s a 34 percent increase from the previous year.
And the need for services continues today.
Kristen Baluyot is The Salvation Army’s social services director in Denver.
She’s worked throughout the pandemic to keep people in their homes, to stave off eviction and prevent homelessness.
As she’ll tell you, she wants to enrich lives—especially over these past 20 months for those who’ve received the unexpected knock of poverty.
Listen in for more about the state of pandemic poverty today and how The Salvation Army is working to prevent homelessness in Denver.
