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? Water bill is past due and disconnected. I need help!
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means that we will have water tonight for my son, and I will be able to cook and clean and offer stability to him. It will help him not be upset by how bad our financial situation really is!
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.
