Salvation Army volunteers go through special training to help those affected by violence or disasters
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Volunteers from the Salvation Army went through special training on Friday.
They’re enrolled in a two-day class to help people who are affected by trauma and/or violence. One of the lessons is it’s not just the people who are physically injured who need help.
“The reality is the emotional and spiritual wounds are often just as great and the impacts of those wounds often last longer,” said Pastor Alexis Twito, Salvation Army Chaplaincy Program Coordinator.
Many of the people in the class want to join the Salvation Army’s Chaplaincy program where they work with Milwaukee Police.
