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? To get help paying my electric bill. I couldn’t pay due to the cost of my medications this month. I was sick and insurance wouldn’t cover it, so I had to pay out of pocket.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means a lot to me. I want to be able to live where I’m at and have electricity to help me be able to live alone.
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.
