Financial help from Salvation Army in Arizona.
The Salvation Army has a number of assistance programs across Arizona. Some of them can provide direct financial help for paying rent, utility bills, medications and more. The amount of cash provided depends on funding. Other locations listed below of the Salvation Army in Arizona will not provide monetary assistance, but instead distribute food, clothing, free Christmas gifts or holiday assistance, offer school supplies and case management services. The Salvation Army helps tens of thousands of people per year.
The exact number and type of programs will vary by location. However some may operate shelters, food pantries, and thrift stores on site. The centers provide additional resources in the Arizona community as funding and resources allow.
For example, they serve more than a quarter of a million meals annually. Many people use the holiday programs that are offered, and can receive Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. Food banks distribute groceries, meals, clothing, and other aid. Some items may be delivered to seniors or the homebound. There are hundreds of local food banks in Arizona, all of which help feed the hungry.
As indicated above, free Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners as well as Christmas gifts are offered to the less fortunate and children. The holiday meal program has served warm food and meals to more than 10,000 individuals in recent years. In addition, volunteers and others from the Arizona Salvation Army have delivered approximately tens of thousands of holiday meals to the homebound in the community.
After school programs are offered for hundreds of children. Many use these services daily through The Salvation Army's Corps Community Center's after-school activities. Children can receive meals, access to activities, and also support from safe and caring educational environments. School aged children can get clothing, books, and other educational material too.
Job finding services can be provided at some locations. Adults in these career programs can get assistance with job-readiness and social workers can help people find employment. Counseling services and referrals are available to job seekers in Arizona. Case managers will work closely with families to ensure stability after they leave the shelter.
Emergency Assistance and Social Services can be administered. As with almost all resources indicated here, this really depends on funding. However, qualified families may be able to receive a limited amount of cash assistance for paying for basic needs from the Arizona Salvation Army centers.
- Rent - If you have an eviction notice, then some money may be offered to help pay your rent and housing costs. They also have information on low cost transitional housing.
- Energy bills - Those families faced with a disconnection, in particular seniors and families with children during the hot summer months, may qualify for funds.
- Transportation - If you need help getting to a promising job interview, if waiting on a first pay check, or if someone needs to get to a doctor appointment, then the Arizona Salvation Army may have resources available. The agency may coordinate volunteers to drive you. Or they can provide, on a limited basis, gasoline vouchers for free.
- Prescription medications and health care - They can refer people to local dental and medical clinics. If you have a life threatening disease, then a voucher may be provided for free prescription drugs.
Other emergency assistance administered in Arizona may include food boxes, security deposits payment assistance, utility bill assistance, USDA food bags and back-to-school clothing. The Christian, faith based church also help immigrants and Spanish speakers, and helps them acclimate to Arizona. As part of that, free school supplies, furniture, housing or shelter resources and much more can be arranged.
