THE SALVATION ARMY USA LAUNCHES NATIONWIDE SUPPORT HOTLINE
In response to the rising levels of anxiety, uncertainty and fear resulting from this unprecedented pandemic, The Salvation Army has launched its first nationwide hotline to provide emotional and spiritual care to anyone impacted by this crisis. If you’re looking for spiritual guidance or local services, or if you just need someone to talk with, Salvation Army officers who are pastors and emotional-care personnel are there to listen.
The phone number is 1-844-458-HOPE (4673). Staff are available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST and will answer calls made from anywhere in the U.S. Counselors speak English and Spanish, and callers are encouraged to leave a message if they call after hours.
As the nation’s largest social services organization with a presence in almost every ZIP code in America, The Salvation Army of Northern New England has expanded its efforts to meet the overwhelming need caused by COVID-19. Uniquely positioned to assist those vulnerable in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Though The Salvation Army of Northern New England is committed to meeting need wherever it exists, COVID-19 will greatly increase the number of service requests received for months – if not years – to come. As a result, ongoing public support will be critical in ensuring no one is turned away or overlooked.
