When people come to The Salvation Army seeking emergency financial assistance, they receive an application to fill out. Included in the application is a voluntary questionnaire that includes just two questions.

Our ‘Brewing Hope’ series will give you insight on what assistance men, women, and children in need are seeking when they come through our doors, and what it means to them to receive a hand up and a sense of hope in their time of need.


Name: Gloria

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I got behind in paying my light bill due to having to get a bed to sleep on. I have no family assistance. I have several health issues that kept me in the hospital and not able to work to add extra income.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? That my son and I can live in our home with electricity and be able to cook and use our medical machines. We are very grateful to be able to get help.


Thank you for supporting the programs and services of The Salvation Army, so we can help people like Gloria find the hope they need to face another day.
