Our Doors are always open

Every year The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of shelter to those in need

As long as there's a salvation army,

there's no such thing as no place to go

When you need a place to stay during the “in-between,” our transitional housing program offers shelter until you find a permanent place to live. If you’ve been evicted, are dealing with an addiction, face a domestic break-up or have another type of housing crisis, contact your local Salvation Army to find out what transitional housing options are available in your area.

About 15% of all homeless people are considered "chronically homeless"

Every Night, The Salvation Army Shelters Almost 30,000 Homeless Americans

How we help provide housing

Sometimes life doesn’t turn out how we planned. Other times we get slammed with an unexpected hiccup, such as job loss or medical debt. With one in six people living in poverty today, hardship can easily lead to homelessness. The Brainerd Lakes Salvation Army has transitional and permanent housing options in that can help.

Emergency Housing
When life throws a curve-ball, you can still count on a warm bed to sleep in. If you’ve lost your housing and need immediate help, you can stay at one of our emergency housing facilities. In cities where we don’t have facilities, we will refer you to partner programs or provide financial assistance to cover nightly housing costs, when available.

Transitional Housing
When you need a place to stay during the “in-between,” our transitional housing program offers shelter until you find a permanent place to live. If you’ve been evicted, are dealing with an addiction, face a domestic break-up or have another type of housing crisis, contact your local Salvation Army to find out what transitional housing options are available in your area.

Permanent Supportive Housing
We want to help people find a place to call home. When you need a long-term housing solution, one of our permanent housing facilities may be a good fit. Our housing options range from supportive housing facilities for seniors to apartments for vulnerable young adults learning independence. We also have complexes for homeless adults and families.
