Welcome To The Salvation Army of Brown CountyVisit The Salvation Army Thrift Store

The Salvation Army believes in meeting the basic needs of individuals and families, young and old. These basic needs include food, clothing, shelter and household needs. While meeting the physical needs, The Salvation Army staff also offer hope and guidance to those coming in for services. Basic need services are available Monday through Friday by appointment. Individuals or families meet with a staff person in a quiet, confidential setting and determine what type and how much assistance can be provided.

Food Pantry - Individuals or families can receive a bag of donated grocery items once every 30 days. The bags contain a variety of food staples such as cereal, soups, pasta, sauces, peanut butter, tuna, or juice. Additionally, frozen foods such as hamburger, chicken, sandwich meats or brats. The contents of the food pantry bags change monthly based on available donations.

Commodity Foods - Individuals or families can receive a bag of commodity food and frozen food items once every 30 days. Commodity foods are available M-F 9am to 4pm on a walk-in basis with photo ID, proof of Brown County address and proof of household members.

Feeding Programs - Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm for anyone who wants to participate. Children must be accompanied by their parent(s). There is no cost for the meal.

Cleaning and Hygiene Products - Individuals or families can request cleaning and hygiene products once every 30 days. Product availability is based on donations but may include laundry soap, toilet paper, household cleaners, shampoo and cream rinse, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Rent Assistance - Individuals or families may receive rent assistance to help avoid eviction or to provide first month’s rent when moving out of a shelter or homeless situation. The amount of rent assistance provided is based on household size and the household must have income to be able to pay the rent in the next months. Assistance is provided via a voucher to the landlord.

Utility Assistance - This assistance is generally available beginning sometime in May until funds run out each year. This assistance is provided in order to help households avoid utility disconnection or to assist with re-connection. Households must be referred by Brown County Human Services and have the disconnection notice papers. Utility assistance is provided on a walk-in basis in the afternoons. Assistance is provided via a voucher to WPS.

Hotel Vouchers - Families with minor children who are temporarily homeless and are unable to secure shelter in Green Bay, Appleton or Oshkosh may be eligible for a hotel voucher for up to 3 nights. There must also be no friends or family in the area that the family can stay with for this time. The family must have a verified plan to move into an apartment within 3 days and have the means to pay their rent in the apartment. Hotel vouchers are subject to availability at local hotels.

Thrift Store Vouchers - Individuals or families can receive furniture or clothing vouchers to The Salvation Army Thrift Store. Clothing vouchers are available once every 6 months based on household circumstances and need. Furniture vouchers are available once to assist individuals or families moving out of a homeless situation and into an apartment.

Transportation Assistance - Vouchers for gas or bus passes may be provided to those who are newly employed and need assistance getting to and from work. This is short term assistance for 2 weeks until the individual’s first work check arrives. Transportation assistance may also be provided for medical appointments out of the area when the need is documented by the physician and when no other forms of transportation are available.

Prescription Assistance - There are limited funds available to assist with prescriptions. This assistance is not for ongoing medications, but rather for prescriptions that are needed due to an emergent medical condition and the household must have no other means to pay for the prescription. The staff work with Shopko to determine if the prescription can be obtained at minimal cost or if a partial prescription can be obtained until the household has funds to pay for the remainder.

Each service has some eligibility requirements such as Brown County residency, proof of identification. Some services have time limits and income eligibility requirements. To find out if you are eligible for any of the above services and to schedule an appointment please contact (920) 593-2379.
