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? Financial difficulty – I didn’t know where or who I could turn to without feeling ashamed. I’m not used to asking anyone for help.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It’s a blessing at a time when I need it the most, help in my struggle without anyone passing judgment.
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.
