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: Emily

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I need my electricity bill paid. My husband has had a serious heart attack, so I can’t have the power shut off.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? Receiving food from your pantry is a blessing. Anything you can help us with will be greatly appreciated.


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