West Virginia Salvation Army financial assistance programs.

When contacting the Salvation Army in West Virginia for help, keep in mind that they have limited resources and only a small number of people will qualify for financial assistance. Additional non-monetary resources can also be offered to qualified low income families as well. Examples of this can include case management, referrals to federal government and West Virginia government assistance programs, and similar.

While the exact type of programs will vary by location and center, in general the Salvation Army in West Virginia can provide emergency financial assistance including free food, clothing and shelter. Some centers offer the Soup Spoon feeding program as well as Meals For One food delivery.

Limited amounts of cash may be offered for utility bill, rent assistance and prescriptions. Other programs offered may include transportation and emergency transitional housing. The Salvation Army may also run holiday programs, which can include Christmas food baskets, toys, and Annual Thanksgiving Dinners as well as access to a thrift store.

West Virginia Family Emergency Service is one of the key programs administered by the Salvation Army. Programs offered can provide for basic human needs at no cost to clients. Locations may have limited amounts of help for rent, food, and utilities. Other resources can provide clothing, footwear, incidental household items, furniture and more as available. Limited transportation help is provided in specific cases.

Most of the financial assistance is only offered in a crisis situation. For example, if you are faced with an eviction and are facing homelessness, the non-profit may have some cash for paying rent. Those families who are about to have their power shut off may qualify for emergency assistance. Or if you need to get to a job interview, some money may be offered to pay for your gas or transportation.

Family Services operates five days per week throughout the year. A number of qualifications will need to be met, such as applicants will need to agree to a personal interview, provide receipts of expenditures for the past 30 days and bring in an Income Statement.

 

 

 

 

One of the programs that is often in greatest demand is Christmas Assistance. This service in West Virginia can help meet the emergency needs of families in the holiday season through resources such as Christmas Dinners by Vouchers, Remembrances & Gifts to Institutional Shut-ins, Access to a Traditional Toy Shop, and free toys and gifts from Angel Tree.
