Each month, the shelter provides more than 100 loads of laundry, 150 showers and 3,000 meals.


The Salvation Army Community Family Shelter provides rooms for families who need a temporary place to stay during the coldest part of winter. This program provides housing for up to 90 days to keep them out of the cold and give them a chance to find permanent housing.


The Home At Last Rapid Rehousing Program quickly transitions families from emergency shelter into local houses or apartments. The
program is designed to help families overcome the significant barriers and challenges that prevent them from living in permanent
housing. Such barriers include, but are not limited to: significant debt, lack of education, unemployment, and mental or physical health
complications. The Home At Last program provides supportive services, community resource referrals, move in costs and rental
assistance for families who need 6-12 months to get back on their feet.

Coordinated Entry/Homeless Connect

The Salvation Army has partnered with other area housing and homeless service providers to provide a comprehensive statewide homelessness response system to help standardize the process for those experiencing a housing crisis and help families or individuals gain access to the supportive services they need. We are the access point location in Region 3 which means at our location we do assessments using standardized tools to understand a households current housing situation and service needs. The assessment helps identify the type of housing intervention that each individual or family needs. After assessment each household is placed on a centralized waiting list prioritized by greatest need. 


The rapid rehousing program provides weekly case management for every family. During case management, weekly goals are set by
identifying and utilizing client's strengths to overcome homelessness such as saving money, finding employment, and finding
housing. Case management is also used as a means to keep families and women accountable in the program.


In 2017 we served 32 families with transitional and emergency housing a total of 60 adults and 57 children. But this is only a portion of
the ongoing work at The Salvation Army Family Shelter. The Day Resource Center serves the entire community as a safe warm
place. While other shelters in the community close during the day, our shelter remains open. It serves as a center for all to gather, for
young mothers with children, a respite for those weary from the burdens of homelessness, for encouragement and inspiration.
The Day Resource Center provides breakfast, lunch and access to showers and laundry facilities for homeless and at-risk of homeless
families and individuals. This program is open to the public every week day and is closed on Saturday and Sunday.
