The 40 bed emergency shelter (located at our Family Services Center at 417 North East Adams St.) provides temporary housing for women, children, and whole families. 

The services & assistance provided in this facility all begin with our housing specialists and case workers, who work together with families to help them identify the root causes of their issues and challenges. Common areas that these dedicated staff members help address in a holistic way include:

  • Nutrition & Food Insecurity
  • Budgeting & Living Expenses
  • Career Searching & Job Resources
  • Education & Child Care
  • And many other personalized issues

All of the families who turn to The Salvation Army are met respectably and guided towards gaining self-sufficiency. This is done in a number of ways, but the most successful & impactful is through enrollment into our Pathway of Hope program.

To learn more about this facility, or if your family is in need of support - please contact us today online, over the phone, or in person to begin receiving the life-changing assistance that your Salvation Army brings to local families every day. 

The Sylvia Fites Center (located at 414 NE Jefferson St.) is home to many different programs & services that aim to meet a variety of needs that The Salvation Army recognizes within our local Peoria communities. 

  • The Lunch with Love Program - provides a free meal Monday - Friday at 12:00 p.m. for those in need of a hot nutritious lunch.  Approximately 200 meals are served daily here, with many of them being supplied/donated, as well as served, by local volunteers, businesses & community members.
  • The Safety Net Program - offers overnight shelter to homeless men. This not only provides a safe environment for these individuals to sleep but also a sack lunch to those who stay each night. The men who enter this program are also enrolled into case-management in order to assist them with finding more permanent housing as well as identifying their other needs.
