Salvation Army Shelters Stay Nearly Full

Rex Andrew, kfyo

Major Tim Grider of the Salvation Army  is a newcomer to Lubbock, but not to Texas.  He previously served in Amarillo. On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Grider was asked how the level of homelessness in Lubbock compares to other cities.

“Coming from Amarillo, which is truly a crossroad city, I’ve found in my time here in Lubbock, we are truly our nickname, Hub City. People come through this area from other states, especially from the west where the economy is worse than ours.  They see our lower unemployment rate.  They assume there are jobs.  They come here. We’re certainly dealing with it every day.  Our shelters stay full or nearly full, especially our family units.”

You can hear more about the Salvation when Major Grider is a guest on This Week in Lubbock Sunday at 6 a.m.
