At The Salvation Army Hope Center, we believe in meeting the basic needs of individuals and families, young and old. These basic needs include food, clothing, shelter and household needs. While meeting the physical needs, The Salvation Army staff also offer hope and guidance to those coming in for services. Basic need services are available Monday through Friday by appointment. Individuals or families meet with a staff person in a quiet, confidential setting and determine what type and how much assistance can be provided. Below are the programs and services offered at The Salvation Army Stevens Point.
The Salvation Army Hope Center
The Salvation Army Hope Center is a short-term emergency shelter, with a capacity of 35. We provide shelter to single men, single women, and families with children.
The Hope Center is just that, a place of hope for those who have little or none left. With a family-type environment, the Hope Center provides a warm bed for those who are in need of emergency shelter for a given period of time.
Residents meet with an advocate to create a plan, just for them, to get back on their feet again. The Hope Center is not a place for a handout, it's a place for a hand up.
Hot meals are served daily for those who are in need of something at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Simply sign in and enjoy. The meals are prepared that same day and served in a cafeteria-style dining facility.
