For those looking to escape extreme cold, intense heat, torrential rain, or just wanting a a safe, quiet place to spend the night, The Salvation Army provides a nutritious meal, a warm bed and a clean shower.
In 1939, The Salvation Army opened the doors on its first Harbor Light center in Detroit. This has since grown into the largest drug rehabilitation in the state and is known as The Eastern Michigan Salvation Army Harbor Light System. There are three locations that offer bed and bread programs, sheltering up to 750 clients and serving 1.7 million meals each year. The Salvation Army Harbor Light System aims to end hunger and homelessness from the lives of our recovering clients. Harbor Light opens its doors every day of the year.
The Salvation Army's Booth Services provides:
- Emergency Shelter for women and families
- Emergency assistance for surrounding community
- Case Management
- Pastoral Care & Worship
Detroit Medical respite provides a place for homeless individuals to recover and recuperate from hospital stays. Rather than being released by hospitals as soon as possible, we provide a safe, clean environment for people to fully recover before being released.
