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 St. Cloud Salvation Army has transitional and permanent housing options in that can help.
