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: Betty Jane
What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? My sister died last month and I couldn’t pay my electricity or water bill due to traveling to Rhode Island for the funeral.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It means so much to me because I always pay my bills the first of the month, faithfully.
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.
