Salvos lend a hand
THE welcomed introduction of the Salvation Army's Moneycare program into the Lockyer Valley last month is set to help struggling individuals and families get back on their feet.
The Salvation Army's Moneycare program is a free service providing financial guidance and counselling for those who have become tied up in debt or suffer from other financial issues.
Salvation Army financial councillor George Nathan said the floods had caused many people to find themselves caught up in a number of financial woes, and the Moneycare program was a free service that aimed at guiding people through the issues into more financially secure situations.
“The Salvation Army saw the need following the floods to have a financial counselling service in the Lockyer Valley,” Mr Nathan said.
“The Salvation Army program will help people in financial difficulty through their issues so the best solution might be found.
“The program aims to empower people to work their way out of financial problems to create a positive future.”
After being a debt collector himself for 20 years, Mr Nathan understands and has extensive experience dealing with debt problems and can guide those in need through their issues so that they can get their lives on track.
A Salvation Army Moneycare service has also been introduced in Laidley providing the Lockyer Valley with one of a kind free financial counselling.
Appointments are necessary with the Moneycare program running between 8.30am and 4.30pm in Laidley, and Lockyer Valley residents can call 1300 662 217 to make an appointment.
