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: Francine

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Needing help with my electric bill and also I’m running low on food.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means a great deal to me that your organization is out here and willing to help and provide for the needing citizens. And I thank the Lord for your blessings.

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