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: Doris

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Need assistance with my light bill. I am having financial problems this month because of student loans I can’t pay since I became disabled.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? Because of The Salvation Army, I was able to get help when I needed it the most. If it wasn’t for programs like this one, a lot of people that have financial problems would be lost. They have helped me more than once, and I thank The Salvation Army for that.

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