Always a helping hand in times of need
To meet the variety of needs that occur, The Salvation Army offers a variety of services as outlined below. To find out about homeless ministries in your area, please contact your nearest Salvation Army location by entering your zip code below.
Comprehensive Shelters – These shelters welcome all homeless who come to their door. Comprehensive services are available to single-parent families, single women, single men, married couples, children awaiting placement in a foster home, and dual-parent families.
Family Shelters & Housing – These shelters offer strategic programming specifically geared to meet the many combined circumstances that perpetuate homelessness and struggle in families. Program assistance includes individual case work and education to address substance abuse issues, life and career skills enhancement, parenting skills education, and more.
Transitional Housing – Transitional Housing is available to individuals or families who have been in the care of our shelters at least 6 months and who need a little extra support before forging their own path. Life skills training and education are crucial to promoting the continued success of the inhabitants once they are again independent.
Soup Kitchens – Most corps (churches of The Salvation Army) offer food services to help the hungry. Those in need are welcome to come and take nourishment. In some areas, faithful members of The Salvation Army even seek out those who are homeless and bring them meals to ensure they remain fed.
