Northwest Division Annual Report

Our Leadership

Lt. Colonels Cindy and Tim Foley Northwest Divisional Leaders


The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an

evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Finding Hope in The Salvation Army Tracie’s little girl life appeared destined for the red carpet treatment, full of promise and nurtured in a blended family. She was athletic and strong, starring in her favorite sports of softball and volleyball and preparing to be prom queen from the day she entered high school as a resident small-town beauty. She stayed on the path after meeting a nice man and focused her life on her baby Noah. Life shattered in a thousand fragments when she discovered her husband’s affair with her best friend from grade school. With no place to go with her tiny son, Tracie returned to her mother and stepfather’s home. On a fateful day when she learned her grade school niece would be left in the solo care of her stepfather, Tracie revealed to the family that he had brutally abused her from the time she was seven years old.

“Addiction quickly and immediately took over my life,” Tracie said. “I lost everything and I started lying, cheating, stealing…all the while pretending that I was ok, as I learned to do all those years I was being abused.” She turned to burglarizing neighborhoods to support her habit while Noah was in school. “I was caught and sent to jail and have been in and out of jail more times than anyone can imagine. Every time I promised Noah it was the last time, and one day I would never leave him again.” That day only came after her exhusband successfully completed the Adult Rehabilitation Program in The Salvation Army. “He told me that if he could recover with God’s help, I could too, and I wanted what he had. After I accepted God in the program, my life changed forever. I get to be the woman I am today, the mom I am today, and the employee I am today, because of The Salvation Army.”
