Salvation Army Today – 6.8.2017 – BRAVE Event

The Salvation Army in Seattle, Washington hosted their first Brave event. Brave is a catalytic event for conversation and connection for girls ages 12–18 in the foster care system. This one-day event is designed to remind these girls that they are valuable, lovable, and to encourage them to dream big dreams for what their futures can be. After the event, they join a group of other girls who will be mentored in intentional ways by someone who desires to show them that life can be different than what they’ve known.
