Keeping the Lights On

Energy assistance is a blessing to those who are forced to choose between rent and utilities.

Utility Assistance

We offer basic needs services including showers, toiletries, and clothing vouchers (by appointment). Through our main office, we can also provide housing guides and applications for rental assistance, HeatShare utility assistance, transportation assistance to and from a job, and emergency motel vouchers. For more information call 507-288-3663 or stop by our main office (view map) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m

HeatShare Program
Our HeatShare program is offered at most Salvation Army centers in Minnesota and can pay your utility bill once you have a shut-off notice in hand. Call the HeatShare hotline at 1-800-842-7279 for immediate help. Find out if you qualify and get HeatShare program details.

Gas Affordability Program
The Salvation Army is an administrator for the Gas Affordability Program (GAP) that provides qualifying customers of Minnesota utility companies with gas bill assistance. View the GAP program details and get help.
