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: Doreen B.

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Help with electric bill.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? There are people that care about your circumstances when things get really tough, especially when you’re dealing with a life threating situation like cancer. They don’t make you feel degraded, it’s a kind and care place with good people. They’re there for the community.

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