brewing hope

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.

Name: Belinda

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I really need help at this time. I have absolutely nobody to turn to. I have two kids with no help from their fathers, and I recently took my little sister in because she had nowhere to go, and we can’t depend on our mother.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means a lot to me when I receive help, because I never get it. Sometimes I wish I wouldn’t have to ask for it.

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.
