The Salvation Army John Gardner Stevenson Family Emergency Shelter serves the greater Adams County area (including Hannibal, MO area) as well as transients who have come to our community and find themselves in a homeless situation. It is the goal of our program to equip our residents with the knowledge and life skills training needed to find employment and suitable, affordable housing that they might become self-sufficient individuals.  

The shelter area of the building has 10 rooms that can house up to 14 people with rooms dedicated to single men and women as well as families. The building also houses our Family Services operation and Food Pantry/Breadline. This shelter is the only one within a 100 mile radius that serves this population.

During their stay, residents are required to look for a job or instructed how to save money in order to move into a place of their own, and meet with a caseworker on a regular basis.  Our goal is to provide a comfortable, safe environment for our residents. Meals, laundry facilities, phone calls and other needed items are all provided for those staying in the shelter. A normal stay in the emergency shelter is 30 days, but could be longer or shorter depending on the client’s situation.
