Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter

Salvation Army

Maintaining utilities such as heat, electric and water are crucial to housing stability.  In partnership with the Salvation Army, SAS administers a Utility Assistance Program for Shenandoah County for residents who have received a shut-off notice.


This assistance is limited to individual/household use once every 2 years per Salvation Army requirements, and the amount of assistance provided is based on donations received.  

To apply for Utility Assistance, clients in need must contact the SAS office to complete a HelpLink Assessment.  If assistance is offered, clients are required to complete, sign and return the Salvation Army Application for Assistance. 


This application is available for download on the right of this page.  If you are unable to print the application, it can be provided in person. 


​SAS developed and operates a HelpLink system for Local Area Churches to encourage partnership and distribution of community assistance to residents in need as well as to prevent the duplication of financial assistance within Shenandoah County.
