The Washington centers of the Salvation Army do their best to meet the basic human needs of all who come seeking assistance for an emergency. Assisting the low unemployed, seniors, and the working poor is one of the agencies main goals. Addressing the basic human needs of housing, food, shelter, clothing and safety is critical in the short and long term development of low income and struggling families. So short term financial assistance can be provided for paying energy bills, rent, food, and more. This is done at the same time that Washington families receive ongoing case management and social services. All programs are limited by funding.
Housing Programs are offered by many locations of the Salvation Army in Washington. For example, they may be able to offer transitional, short and long-term housing to those in need of shelter.
Motel Vouchers or hotel vouchers may be distributed when a family is evicted or if a disaster destroys a home. The Salvation Army is often able to provide short-term motel vouchers which can give people a safe place to stay during the crisis.
A number of shelters may be available as well. For example, men's shelters, which can include severe weather shelters and transitional housing, is available to men, placing an emphasis on military veterans. Women's Shelters are also often run. The Salvation Army of Washington provides transitional, short and long-term housing to women, whether they're escaping from a domestic violence environment or the streets. Last, but not least, children's shelter are run. In a crisis, The Salvation Army may be able to provide a safe place for children who are no longer safe in their own homes or apartments.
Additional programs and services administered can include these.
The Christmas Angel Tree program can help brighten the lives of thousands of lower income children each year who otherwise would have no gifts, clothing items or toys to open during the holiday season. The Christmas Angel program is a purely volunteer-driven program. Many families and individuals across Washington donate toys, time and expertise to the Salvation Army. Overall Angel Tree is a testament to people trying to help their neighbors and the less fortunate.
Another resource is the Adopt a Family program. Families who are in desperate need of providing the basics for their family, such as clothing, food and household items are placed in the care of our Adopt a Family program. Each family who is part of the program will need to create a wish list of items and is matched with a volunteer donor team. School groups, corporations, individuals and local families contribute generously to meeting the family’s needs and installing hope.
