HOME SWEET HOME PROGRAM
The Salvation Army Home Sweet Home Program helps prevent homelessness and support residential stability by providing homeless and at-risk households the tools to effectively budget and manage income and expenses.
Through The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home Program, professional case workers, along with friends or partners in the community, can prevent homelessness not only at the point of family eviction, but beyond.
To put a family back together after it is broken requires more time, skills and financial resources than many families have available. Through financial education, case management, financial assistance (1-6 months) and monthly budgeting, families may be spared months of misery, saving the community thousands of dollars in sheltering and rehabilitation.
To be selected as a participant in the Home Sweet Home Program, a family must show a strong desire to change, improve their family’s situation and work within the program’s guidelines.
We offer the Home Sweet Home Program at the following locations:
THE SALVATION ARMY
CARR P. COLLINS SOCIAL SERVICES CENTER
5302 Harry Hines Blvd.
Dallas, Texas 75235

Find Transitional and Sober Housing
Transitional housing is supportive housing that helps fight the homeless problem in todays society. Transitional housing is generally for a limited time period. Stays can be from two weeks to twenty four months.
Transitional housing provides people with help after a crisis such as homelessness or domestic violence. Currently we have over 5,152 transitional housing locations in our database. We also provide as much information on each housing location along with pictures.
Families can call daily to get on screening list. Screening takes place twice a month (2nd and 4th Thursday). When approved, family has an interview with staff. Once accepted, they move into a furnished apartment unit. Program last a year to work on employment, credit repair, and savings to transition into their own place.
Austin Street Center provides safe shelter and meets the basic needs of the most vulnerable homeless.
Founded in 1983, Austin Street Center is an emergency shelter that serves men ages 45 and older and women ages 18 and older. Each person who finds shelter with us is provided a safe place to sleep, showers, clothing, and meals. Once their basic needs are met, they can begin working on other aspects of their lives that will help them transition out of homelessness.
The Union Gospel began as a street ministry in 1949 when a group of Christian businessmen took to the streets of Dallas, telling the poor about God’s love for them. Through the 1950’s the Mission operated out of two rented buildings on Ervay Street, south of downtown offering food and clothing to those in need through a volunteer staff.
In 1962 we opened our first homeless shelter on Park Avenue, sheltering up to 75 men and 30 women. When Bill Thompson became Executive Director in 1988, he formalized our 4-phase, faith-based rehabilitation program that has transformed countless lives through spiritual counseling, job training- and God’s redemptive love. (Mission clients who graduate from our program are referred to as “disciples.”)
