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 have been treated for cancer. I get just enough Social Security to get by, but the financial burden of my illness is overwhelming and I need to get back to a place where I can pay my monthly expenses.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It’s a Godsend. I don’t have family or anywhere else to turn.
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.
