Each year, The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of shelter to those in need.

About 15% of the homeless population in the U.S. is comprised of 'chronically homeless' individuals.

This population is especially vulnerable during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

Find a Location

As long as there's The Salvation Army, there's no such thing as 'no place to go.'

Our group homes, emergency shelters and transitional living centers provide housing, food and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. In addition, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

The Salvation Army provides safe shelter to nearly 30,000 people every night through a variety of programs.

Hans K. Lemcke Emergency Lodge
For single men and women needing a safe, quiet place to spend the night, the Hans K. Lemcke Emergency Lodge provide a warm bed and a clean shower to those in need. With 24 men's beds and 16 women's beds, space is at a premium. Those in need can come to our office from 8:15 am to 10:30 am, Monday through Friday to find out if a bed is available.

Cold Weather Shelter
When the weather turns cold, The Salvation Army works as part of a county-wide effort to provide additional shelter for our vulnerable citizens. From November 4, 2017 to April 15, 2018 our doors open at 9 pm to provide solace from the elements for single men and women.

Family Service Programs
The Salvation Army assists families in need by providing transportation, housing and utility assistance. Best of all, these programs enable parents to stay with their children.
