Homeless Woman’s Twitter Rant Explains Why Nobody Should Donate To The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army – USA received more than $2 billion from direct public support that year, according to their 2017 financial report.
However, a homeless woman who had been living in one of their facilities named Heather Snow said that no one should donate a single cent to them ever again in her emotional Twitter rant about the experience she and other women were having in one of their centers in Portland.

She added that the sole purpose of the organization is to make a profit, and according to their 2017 financial report, they had a surplus of $622 million. The thread went viral across the social media, and it ignited a heated discussion about the organization and similar organizations around the world. Check out the debate for yourself below, and tell us what you think on this matter in the comments!

This is how the Salvation Army responded:

And, of course, Heather Snow was kicked out of the shelter:

This is how people responded to the story:


I stayed there after my house burned. There’s so many things wrong with the SA, I’ll never donate another penny.
Food is donated (mostly from Walmart) to give away at lunch and supper. The “major” put a guard (unpaid resident) on the food until she goes through it and gets what she wants. Residents aren’t allowed to get any of that food. The “major” took the stove out of the lodge (where residents live) so they are forced to eat the expired slop the SA serves.
My sugar bottomed out one Sunday morning and I became unresponsive. They refused to call an ambulance and left me for dead. By the grace of God, I woke up Tuesday morning and was promptly thrown out for not leaving the lodge by 8:00 am on Monday morning. They said I should’ve told them that I needed to go to the ER. While I was unresponsive, I should’ve told them that I was sick. That’s just one thing. There’s so many more.
DHS, CPS, and/or law enforcement needs to investigate the Tupelo, MS Salvation Army on behalf of the children. Specifically about the bus incident on the return trip from camp in 2017, and the incident at the camp where they were staying in 2018. I doubt that will come to fruition. The investigators will either be incompetent, or won’t do a proper investigation because of the who’s who.

Catholic Charities much better
