When people come to The Salvation Army seeking food, shelter, or 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: Faola

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I turned to The Salvation Army for help with paying my water bill because I am having a hard time paying all my bills by myself since my husband left.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? Receiving services from The Salvation Army means the world to me and my children, because we have no where else or anyone else to turn to at this time but the Lord.

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