About 15% of all homeless people are considered "chronically homeless."
The hottest and coldest months of the year are most difficult for this segment of society.
For those facing extreme heat, unbearable cold, wet weather, or other dangerous elements on the street, each Salvation Army homeless shelter is a welcome respite featuring a safe place to eat, sleep, and shower at no cost.
By assisting with food, shelter, educational support, counseling services, and vocational direction, our unique group housing programs help residents cultivate vital life skills for a successful and stable position in society.
Rather than separating families in need by gender or age, our family shelters help parents and children of all ages stay together. In addition to providing temporary homeless shelters, we provide families with meal-planning, utility, and long-term housing assistance.
