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: Belinda

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Because now in this time I need help the most. I’m a single mother and I take care of my kids by myself. I’m just trying to make it.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It would mean a lot to me, and I would be so thankful for anything I might receive.

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