Adults in need make up the biggest group we serve

Through programs designed to address the mind, body and soul, we meet the needs of adults of all ages.

Serving homeless adults

The Salvation Army of Burnett County has many programs designed to serve our most vulnerable adults.  With an increase in demand for services coming from our homeless seniors, homeless veterans and homeless individuals with disabilities (either mental or physical), the need to expand our programs is here.  Learn more about how we are serving these important adults in our community.

Supporting Strong Futures

Individuals and Families on our housing programs, after leaving Faith House Shelter have had much success, they gain independence and confidence. They are more likely to stay permanently housed in the long term.

How we help partner with adults

HOUSING PROGRAMS BEYOND FAITH HOUSE

Rapid Re-Housing

Rapid Re-Housing programs help homeless persons living on the streets or in at Faith House transition as quickly as possible into permanent housing. Once in permanent housing, This program helps provide services and short to medium term rental assistance to help such persons remain housed. For more information, please contact Sandy Clark at 715-349-8744.

Homeless Prevention Programs

Homeless Prevention programs help individuals and families who are at risk of homelessness stay in their homes. For more information, please contact Sandy Clark at 715-349-8744.

Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)

TBRA is a rental subsidy program that helps individual households with affordable housing up to 18 months.  During this time clients will complete a low income housing application and find their own apartment. The goal of this program is to provide assistance for safe, decent, and affordable housing.  Persons in the rental assistance program usually pay 30 percent of their income for rent.  To learn more about TBRA, please contact Sandy Clark at 715-349-8744.

SOAR - SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery 

Faith House Shelter has paid staff who work full time to help homeless, disabled individuals apply for Social Security Disability Benefits.  Many homeless individuals who are disabled do not have the resources they need to get help for their disability.  Having the disability in turn makes it impossible to work to gather the resources they would need.  We are able to provide this important resource to individuals and have a very strong record of successful applications for our most vulnerable populations.  While working on Social Security Applications, residents can move forward in housing and are provided case management throughout the process.
