46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.

The Salvation Army is here to Help, and to offer Hope.

Poverty doesn't have to be permanent.

The Salvation Army helps those in need to overcome poverty through a variety of programs.

 

Social Service Assistance
Many families and individuals facing poverty often must make the painful choice between heating and eating - that is, they must decide whether they'll pay their bills or pay for food. Without sufficient funds, many are forced to go without a warm, nutritious meal in order to keep a roof over their head. This program assists individuals and families with food assistance, hot meals, clothing and furniture vouchers (when applicable).

Our office hours are as follows:

  • Monday to Friday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Our food pantry hours are:

  • Tuesdays 10am to 12pm, Wednesdays 2pm to 4pm, Fridays 2pm to 4pm

 

We no longer offer daily hot meals, instead we are providing meals to families through Neighborhood House.

 

Emergency Assistance

Our ability to assist with Emergency situations (such as rent fees, deposits, emergency housing needs, transportation vouchers etc.) are addressed on a case-by-case basis, as funding allows. To find out more, please come to our office during our open hours.

 


Utility Assistance - please read the qualifications carefully before applying!

The Salvation Army Utility Assistance Program assists with R.E.A.C.H. (Dominion Energy), LEND A HAND (Rocky Mountain Power), and Project Water ASSIST (Salt Lake Corporation Water).  These programs exist to assist the low-income, elderly, disabled, veterans, and families either catch up on past due bills, avoid shut off, or get utilities set up in a new residence.  Households qualify for each type of assistance only once in a 12-month period.

To qualify for this program, the household must be below 150% of the 2023 Federal Poverty Line for gross monthly income.  See below.

 

Documentation Needed: 

  • Photo ID for all household members over 18.
  • Birth Certificates/Medicaid cards, or immunization records for all children under the age of 18.
  • Proof of Income: Social Security Award letter (current year), or a bank statement showing the most recent deposit, or paycheck stubs for the last 30 days for all income earners in the household.
  • HEAT approval/denial notice (if applying for Rocky Mountain Power help)
  • Most recent copies of the utility bill(s) for which you are needing assistance.
