Rent, Utilities & General Assistance

Helping Others During This Time of Crisis

During these times of crisis, The Salvation Army is here to lend a helping hand. The Salvation Army helps families and individuals in need pay rent and utility bills, purchase clothing and put food on the table. To ensure the safety of our clients and staff, The Salvation Army of Greenville will be accepting requests for assistance online. We have made online forms available for those applying for assistance:

  • If you need help paying rent/utilities and your need is directly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic (ex. laid off from job due to COVID-19 cuts, etc.), please fill out our rent assistance request form here. In order to fill out this form, you will need a password, which will be given to you during a pre-screening evaluation. To receive this evaluation, please call the United Way of Greenville's 211 helpline. The 211 helpline operator will ask you questions regarding your location, type of assistance, income level, access to internet and other relevant questions. Once approved, the United Way operator will give you the password required to fill out this form.



  • If you need help with rent/utilities, clothing, food, etc. and your need is NOT directly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, please fill out the general assistance form below (available in English and Spanish) to submit your request for help.
