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? I need the help, and was told this is a place to be where no judgment will be passed on you.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? This means everything to me. Only because it shows that someone out there understands me and understands that some people often fall short, and just need a helping hand to get back on track. And I thank you all.
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.
