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? We don’t have enough money to pay our bills. We have to let one or two go each month and then try to catch up somehow. Plus, I am diabetic and don’t have money to buy the right foods.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means we will be able to relax a little and not have to worry all the time where our next meal is coming from. Plus, we don’t have to worry about which bill are we going to pay this month.
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.
