Our emergency shelter offers temporary housing to survivors and their children fleeing life-threatening situations. Clients living in our emergency shelter are provided with food, clothing and all the necessities of daily living along with case management, safety planning, counseling, legal advocacy, and referral to other community resources. Clients can stay in the emergency shelter for up to 30 days and the location of the shelter remains strictly confidential to ensure the safety of those living in the shelter. Children living in the shelter are enrolled in schools nearby or may attend their home school if it is safe to do so.
Once a client leaves the emergency shelter, she may be eligible to participate in our transitional housing program. This program provides up to 24-months rental assistance along with case management and life skills workshops.

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
