I’m in my lunch position with turkey wraps and Greek yogurt for today’s lunch to Salvation Army delegates to the Urbana 12 conference here in St Louis, corner of 7th Street and Convention Plaza.


About an hour ago I had a few moments to take a look at the new Salvation Army Residence for veterans on Locust Street. It’s right behind the historic Harbor Light on Washington just east of SLU.

Affordable housing has become a significant part of the Army’s mission in St Louis. ‘workforce housing’ meaning a place to rent that matches my income. That’s justice in action.
