If you need some to talk to the Salvation Army is making available an Emotional and Spiritual Care Hotline to offer support.

As the stress and uncertainty continue across the nation and the world, The Salvation Army has established an emotional and spiritual hotline for anyone affected by the COVID-19 virus.

Individualized support for people affected by pandemic available 7 days a week at The Salvation Army.

Emotional and Spiritual Care (ESC) Hotline:

  • The Hotline is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (CST), seven days a week
  • Call 844-458-HOPE (4673)
  • A team of ESC specialists made up of Salvation Army Officers and trained employees

The goal of the hotline is to offer assistance to folks who are overcome with worry or undue stress caused by the virus pandemic. Callers will find people ready to listen to their concerns and even pray with them.

The hotline initially went into effect on Friday, March 27th and since then, calls have been coming in with mothers asking how to deal with the additional stress of homeschooling their children while other callers were seeking advice and prayer as they face the potential loss of their home and/or the loss of employment or being furloughed.

An integral part of The Salvation Army’s year-round service includes emotional and spiritual care particularly during times of crisis by providing much-needed aid including immediate physical needs in the community such as provisions of food, rent and utility assistance throughout the nation.
