At The Salvation Army, we often meet people from diverse backgrounds with varying needs. Mdm Sheila*, a single mother with a young son, was one of them who approached The Salvation Army Family Support Services (FSS).

After Mdm Sheila was granted custody of her son from her divorce, she moved into a rental flat due to the regular hostilities at her parents' home. Being the sole provider and caregiver, she was under undue stress juggling between working part-time and caring for her son. In desperation, she approached FSS for assistance. Without haste, FSS supported her through counselling sessions, gave food rations and referred her to the relevant agencies for financial assistance.

Just when things were stabilising, Mdm Sheila's son was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Having to accompany him for his medical appointments, she had to be frequently away from work which caused her to lose her job. These setbacks eventually took an emotional toll on her. FSS staff stood by her and provided her with a safe space to relieve her pent-up frustrations. FSS also helped her prioritise her family's needs and find new support networks for her son. After gaining new strength to better manage her situation, Mdm Sheila is now ready to re-join the workforce.

Your gift can help people like Mdm Sheila, who are impacted by their living circumstances, stay resilient during challenging times.
