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: Melody

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Needed an electricity bill paid. A few child support payments were late, making me behind on my bills.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means less stress with having to find or borrow money for one month, which can set me back several months of late bills and/or owing money.


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