Housing and Homeless Services
Group homes, emergency shelters, and transitional living centers provide housing on a temporary basis for varying amounts of time. They:
- serve the homeless by providing food and overnight lodging.
- provide educational, counseling and vocational services to homeless and destitute individuals and families for extended periods.
- address long-term specific issues of youth for whom family care is undesirable or unavailable. Education, counseling, health care and specific training seek to meet the needs of such groups as pregnant teens, emancipated minors, and wards of the juvenile court.
- address specific health or societal driven needs of particular populations.
Family service programs help families and needy individuals with emergency food, housing, utility assistance and other temporal needs.
Salvation Army programs vary with local needs. For information on specific programs and locations, contact your local Salvation Army Corps Community Center by doing a zip code search in our website’s Location field.
