The Salvation Army Greater Houston Command says during the first six months of this year, they've helped about 2,500 local families through its social services department. That's same number of clients as the entire 12 month period of last year.
Officials say they're stretching every dollar and are asking the community to help. They expect the number of people needing help will double by the end of next year.
