Emergency Assistance

As part of our community outreach program, Salem Lutheran Church strives to provide emergency assistance to community members in our neighborhood area (zip codes 55107 and 55118 only). Emergency assistance funds are solely dependent on donations made to the church. For this reason, we cannot always meet requests as they occur, cannot guarantee any specific dollar amount and can only offer one-time assistance per household. If you are in need of help, please complete the Emergency Assistance Application below. We  will contact you with a decision regarding your application within 7 business days of receipt of the application. If you are a member of Salem please speak directly with Pastor Aaron Holmgren. Listed below are links for additional community resources.
