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: Chasity

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I need some assistance with a past due utility bill. I had a major back injury and have not been able to work.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? I am very grateful for receiving the benefits. I always donate when I see any red kettles for The Salvation Army.

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