The Salvation Army has moved its Family Services office to a new location. Over the summer, the Quad Cities chapter found places for its homeless clients to live. And it closed the downtown Davenport emergency shelter. It's now working to prevent homelessness by helping families stay in their apartments and homes.
When children move into a homeless shelter, the transition can be traumatic. That's why directors and volunteers at the family shelter in Muscatine make sure every child is greeted by a friendly, and furry, face.
