REALTORS® learned more about the Salvation Army’s Real Estate for Rehab Program
On August 4, 2016 the August General Membership Meeting was held at The Salvation Army Tampa Adult Rehabilitation Center, where 55 REALTORS® were introduced to the Real Estate for Rehabilitation program by Major Mrs. Katherine Reed and David Clark. An alumnus of the rehabilitation center, who was a former baseball player for the Chicago Cubs, then shared his testimony on how he was able to recover from alcohol and drug addiction. By getting the care he needed at this center, he is today reunited with his family and enjoying work as a mortgage loan officer. After the meeting’s business concluded, 31 REALTORS® accepted the invitation to take a tour of the center, which is composed of a 158-bed residence, chapel, classrooms, counseling offices, recreation and dining rooms, and processing center where the donated goods get sorted before being sent to the center’s five family stores within Hillsborough, Pasco and Polk counties.
The work rehabilitation program is free to the people in recovery because of the donations that are collected, and the Real Estate for Rehabilitation program is our profession’s way to encourage our customers to stress less during their move by giving more of their unwanted goods to the center by calling for a free truck pickup at 1-800-SAtruck.
