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

Permanent, Supportive Housing (Maxfield Place)
Maxfield Place is a permanent, supportive housing program for adults with a diagnosed disability who are considered chronically homeless.

There are 10 individual apartments for single adults which include a bed, full kitchen and bathroom. Residents cook and prepare their own meals and do their own laundry.

Maxfield Place is staffed 24 hours a day and employs a case worker, who helps residents develop a long-term plan and collaborates with other service providers for referrals. Since 2006, The Salvation Army has worked with the Office of Housing and Urban Development to support the program.

Seasonal Shelter
From November through March, the overnight shelter provides temporary, safe and warm housing accommodations for up to 33 adult men per night. The shelter is open seven days a week from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Homeless men in need of emergency shelter should report to the shelter director from 7:30 p.m. 8:00 p.m. Residents receive a hot shower, dinner, and access to laundry facilities. Fellowship is also available.
