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.
What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? In need of assistance with electricity bill. I have been between jobs, looking to work and pick up extra shifts during the hours of my daughter’s pre-school. That hasn’t been the easiest, thankfully things may be coming together with more work.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It is an amazing blessing. It means we’ll have power, and will be able to keep what little money we have for food or gas for work.
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.
