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: Courtney

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I can’t afford to pay my electric bill, and needed some food for the house, so I reached out for help.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? A lot. My lights will be shut off today, and I don’t have anyone to ask for help.


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