The Emergency Assistance Program is an integral part of The Salvation Army, providing services to families on an emergency basis. These services are available to any qualifying resident of Kansas & Western Missouri to help provide aid for families who need rent, utility, clothing, food or other required assistance. Our Caseworkers meets with families to assess their needs and how help might be available.
Pathway of Hope is designed to be a high-impact approach to assistance by focusing on finding the root causes keeping families from becoming self-sufficient. The program targets families with children in an effort to impact generational poverty.
Families accepted into the program will work with one of our social workers on a long-term intensive case management basis, providing them life skills training and potential resources to address their specific barriers to increased stability.
