Homeless Resource Center
The Homeless Resource Center seeks to reach out to the community homeless to provide an encouraging word, a shower, laundry facility, comfort kit and food bags. This program is there for those who would otherwise not have access to these basic needs but also to impact their lives in a positive and Christ centered manner. The vision of The Salvation Army Homeless Resource Center is to meet the needs of those in our community by providing a safe and caring environment to meet some of their immediate needs. We also strive to provide opportunities to help empower these individuals to move forward with their lives both physically and spiritually. Through this center we also provide the opportunity for these individuals to come to other Salvation Army programs and events.
The Homeless Resource Center is manned by volunteers and currently is open only on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM on each of those days.
