“Connection Point will be a significant resource and asset, and spiritual influence in the communities here on the West Shore,” said Major Les Burrows with the Salvation Army. “It’s important that people in need know we are here for them.”

The Salvation Army provides practical help and spiritual support in every area of service and is anticipating to do so in the fast-growing community of Langford as well.
