In times of great distress, we are committed to being a beacon of hope and healing as we have for more than 150 years.  


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Salvation Army is offering financial assistance to households who have recently experienced temporary or permanent job loss or hours cut due to COVID-19.  


The Salvation Army has moved monies from their reserves, in addition to being awarded a grant through CoMoHelps; a collaborated COVID-19 fund with Boone County, Community Foundation of Central Missouri, City of Columbia, Heart of Missouri United Way and Veterans United Foundation.


Those seeking financial assistance can apply for either rent/mortgage assistance with hardships beginning as of April 1, 2020. Please contact Edith Walker at 573-442-3229, ext. 230 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.


All parties must be able to support their claim of hardship due to COVID-19 with notification from their current or previous employer, plus statements from rental/property groups, or a utility company as of April 1, 2020. Must be a Boone County resident to apply.
