Profile= The Salvation Army ~ Sacramento

Shelter for Men & Women The Salvation Army Emergency Shelter is an excellent place for homeless individuals to get a fresh start in life and address many issues that present barriers to achieving self-sufficiency. The shelter provides a 30-day stay with the potential for 3 additional 10-day extensions for a total of a 60 day maximum stay. Our Emergency Shelter consists of 20-beds for women and 60-beds for me. Our clients are treated to daily meals, laundry service along with a clean and safe place to sleep and bathe. We have an excellent knowledge of community resources to mix with our own programs to provide support for the many diverse needs of the clients we serve. These needs are met by individual case plans consisting of specialized groups, education and caring. Through the idea of "gentle shepherding", we are able to assist 40 to 60 percent of our clients into some form of successful housing arrangement each month. Many return and/or call to inform us of the continued successes in their lives and are grateful to this program for "saving their lives." ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Recovery Support & Special Interest Groups All groups are open to the public!
