Homeless women and children have unique needs.

The Salvation Army strives to be there for them and be their shoulder to lean on.
Our staff are committed to ensuring every woman has a chance.

On Saturday, March 19, The Salvation Army dedicated its new Haven Interim Housing, which offers single women and women with children experiencing homelessness a temporary home where they can safely get back on their feet.

The Haven Interim Housing can serve up to 9 families and 8 single women at a time, and provides a safe place where women can save money, get jobs and learn life skills while knowing their children are in a safe environment. Residents can stay at the shelter for up to four months.

"This program allows for us to provide a continuum of care to women who need it. We are able to help the recently homeless, as well as those who need a little more help and time to get back on their feet at our Transitional Living Center." - Major Lee Lescano, Salvation Army Divisional Commander

Haven Interim Housing is located at The Salvation Army's Door of Hope Campus, which also includes a Transitional Living Center and residence for women in The Salvation Army's Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program.

The Salvation Army's Door of Hope has been a safe place for women and children to stay since 1931. Services for residents currently include but are not limited to case management, mental health counseling, career and job development, learning budgeting and saving, basic life skills, parenting skills and pastoral counseling.

The Salvation Army helps makes families whole.

"It was like a dream come true. We were so grateful for a roof over our heads. We got a chance to heal."
