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: Willie

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I came in asking for help with my bill. I’m so thankful to The Salvation Army for all you’ve done.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? I’m thankful that there are professionals with knowledge and experience teaching financial goals and helping citizens of Pinellas County, I’m lucky to be one. I appreciate all the financial help.

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.
