COVID-19 Social Ministries

Helping Others During This Time of Crisis

During these times of crisis, The Salvation Army is here to lend a helping hand. Going forward, The Salvation Army of Greenville will be accepting requests for rent/utilities assistance through an online form. We have made two options available for those applying for assistance:

  • If your need for rent/utilities assistance is directly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic (ex. laid off from job due to COVID-19 cuts, etc.), please fill out our 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.
