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: Deborah

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Help with water bill. I had surgery and was out of work for three weeks, I’m behind in all of my bills.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? If they shut my water off, my wounds would get infected and I’d be back in the hospital.

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