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? Our family is and has been struggling financially for months, and just seems to go back 2 steps and only 1 step forward. Normally, we pull together and do whatever it may take to make ends meet, but the bills have been taking a toll on us and we are falling behind. Now we are facing our utilities being turned off (water, power) and cancellation of car insurance.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? I am so very grateful for the help and support that The Salvation Army offers. Not only to my family, but for everyone that falls in desperate need and has to ask for assistance without losing our pride and dignity in doing so. Thank you to 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.
