The Salvation Army Greenwood MS recognizes that a request for help with a utility shutoff or eviction often involves a complex set of circumstances. For this reason, each applicant receives much more than the processing of his or her paperwork. Through a onetoone interview, the Salvation Army caseworker aims to identify the often multiple factors contributing to the household's emergency situation and provide other forms of assistance, referrals, budget counseling, and emotional support as necessary. This holistic approach of meeting need wherever it is found allows The Salvation Army to help in a way that reduces the likelihood of future crisis, and, in many cases, prevents homelessness.
