The Salvation Army Englewood Red Shield Center located on 69th and Morgan is run by Captain Nikki and Lt. Corey Hughes and I invited Captain Nikki to join me on the prepare podcast. Some of the best research you can do on a topic is actually having a conversation with someone that knows the situation and experience firsthand. I hope this conversation opens your eyes a bit wider and softens your heart to a neighborhood that God is at work in among people that he desperately loves. Here’s my conversation with Captain Nikki.
