Emergency Homeless Shelter

Our emergency shelter is open 365 days a year to provide a safe, clean refuge for men, women, families, and women with children. Our guests are provided with sleeping accommodations, hot meals, showers(including towels and toiletries), and clothes. We also offer a VA Permanent Supportive Housing Program.

Daily Meals for the Homeless

Hunger and proper nutrition are ongoing issues for people on the streets. To address this need, we serve three hot meals a day in our on-site cafeteria for any and all who show up. The free meals are balanced and nutritious to help meet a person’s most basic need.


The Salvation Army Veterans Enrichment program provides permanent housing, long-term comprehensive case management, and supportive services for chronically homeless, disabled veterans. Designed to stabilize housing, increase income through job training/placement, and enhance self-determination, S.A.V.E.‘s mission is to meet a veteran’s most urgent needs as rapidly as possible.
