Rent - Utility - Food Assistance
The Salvation Army is Doing the Most Good to meet the basic needs of all who come seeking help. Taking immediate care of the basic human needs of food, shelter, and safety, assistance to pay utilities, and other necessities based on the need is an important first step in the development of a more positive and permanent change in the people we help. The Salvation Army is interested in more than temporary solutions.
The Emergency Assistance program assess the needs of clients within High Point and surrounding areas. We assist those experiencing a crisis with rent and utility assistance. Emergency Assistance is designed to support the client in maintaining a productive independent lifestyle with direct financial assistance or referrals to other supporting agencies

Mobile Food Pantry
The mobile food pantry is currently only serving 4 mobile sites from the initial 12 low income based housing areas due to Covid-19 restrictions. Our mobile food pantry has established food drops monthly in food insecure areas. It is our goal to continue to assist areas that are on a fixed income or have limited means of transportation with food assistance.
