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: George

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I had to discard my bed because of bed bug activity. I do not have the funds or income to replace it.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It will help with my rest as I was in an accident and I’m in treatment for my back and shoulder.

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