Overnight Homeless Shelters are offered by the Salvation Army. These are free for the homeless, provided there is a room / bed available. The emergency housing that provides a play to stay for a night or so near you is combined with clothes, access to laundry or hygiene supplies, case management, a free breakfast/lunch/diner or another meal. Note some Salvation Army shelters near you are for homeless women or men only, and a smaller number of locations will house families.





When Salvation Army shelters are full, or if there is no housing programs in the county, the homeless can be provided emergency motel or hotel vouchers online. Case workers from the charity often partner with government agencies, corporations and social service groups to help place homeless people in a motel for a short term, emergency stay. Many of these applications are done online. More on Salvation Army hotel vouchers online.

Pathway of Hope and Salvation Army Re-entry programs are available. These will be for homeless people. Clients are not only given access to a shelter near them, but the housing is combined with case management and holistic social services, including with local charities or churches. Salvation Army case workers can help the homeless stabilize their situation.

Everything from free use of the internet to look for a job, budgeting classes, substance abuse services or basic medical care and more is offered. Re-entry often involves the Salvation Army placing the homeless into other short term, low-income housing programs or charities.

Emergency homeless shelters are often combined with Salvation Army transitional housing programs. This is also a multi-faceted program. In general, the homeless will transition from the emergency shelter to a transitional housing program, and eventually permanent housing placement. This too is a goal-based program from Salvation Army Family Services.

People will partner with case workers throughout this processes. Provided the homeless person has a source of income, is substance free, and meets other goals, the shelter will eventually lead to financial assistance to pay for low-income housing or section 8 vouchers. Other resources will be offered as well as needed. More on transitional housing near you.
