Emergency Social Services (ESS)

The Salvation Army Emergency Social Services (ESS) Program bridges a gap for families and individuals by meeting their emergency and basic needs while they are working through their temporary financial crisis.

After assessing clients’ needs, Salvation Army caseworkers provide and assistance package to help clients during temporary setbacks. Part of that package may include referrals to other agencies, which have forged partnerships with The Salvation Army.

Services, based upon available funding, include assistance with mortgage/rent payments, utilities, clothing, groceries/meals, disaster recovery, funeral expenses, furniture, prescriptions and spiritual counseling.
