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: Ana

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? It’s the only agency in my community with availability of funds to assist the needy.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? Less stress and better sleep, for the time being anyway. It’s humbling and keeps my hope strong, I’m grateful for individuals that care and choose to help.

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.
