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: Alicia

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? My husband lost his job and recently just found a new one, so we had trouble paying our bills.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It would help us be able to cook for my children and have lights. I would be so happy.

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