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? My electricity bill is behind and I don’t want it to further get more behind. I am currently picking up more hours at work since I am a PRN full-time nursing student.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means a lot because I currently am trying hard to focus on school and work. Times like this can be rough and it is good to know there is local help. Hopefully when I am done studying for my career, I am able to give back. I want to 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.
