For Immediate Release

McKinley, Inc. is pleased to announce our expanded relationship with the Orlando, Florida chapter of The Salvation Army. Jim Boccher, Residential Sales Senior Vice President, along with Regional Sales Director Stephanie Anson and Leslie Haselden, Regional Property Manager, attended the May 15th Stone Soup Open House event. Those attending the event were able to tour The Salvation Army facilities and speak with the staff. The partnership with The Salvation Army also provides assistance to those who qualify for the program should residents fall upon hard times. The Salvation Army will provide temporary rent and assist with utility payments for individuals who meet their requirements to ensure residents do not lose their homes.

The Salvation Army provides many programs to the underprivileged and underserved; including aid to select individuals participating in one of their programs that is designed to provide employment assistance and budget counseling for individuals who are trying to reintegrate themselves back into the community after a crisis such as foreclosure, job loss, or family separation. Additionally, this program assists individuals so they can learn to manage their own funds, secure employment and pay rent to a Salvation Army housing facility.

We look forward to strengthening our relationship with The Salvation Army so that we can make a difference in the lives of those in need and continuing our commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where we live and work, states Jim Boccher, SVP, Residential Real Estate.
