Some examples of the social services administered are below. Utility bill assistance is for those faced with a financial hardship. The Salvation Army utility assistance program can offer emergency relief for those who are experiencing a crisis in Oakland California and who cannot pay their monthly energy bills. A qualifying individual or family can be assisted with preventing service interruption of their power. They also work closely with programs offered by utility companies such as PG&E. Food Pantry distributions are held in many Alameda County Corps on a monthly, weekly, or biweekly basis. Meals and groceries are usually passed out to senior citizens or the working poor in the region. The food provided serves as emergency assistance and it sustains health to those who could not otherwise afford it and would go without. Other social services are available.
