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: Ty

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I am currently not working full-time due to my enrollment in school.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means I don’t have to stop school when I am so close to being done. Also, it means my children don’t have to go without the necessities.

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