The Salvation Army is one of the largest providers of social services in the world, and a member of the Missouri Governor’s Committee to End Homelessness. One of our core programs is our housing and homeless services program. Through this program, we endeavor to end homelessness, by addressing its root causes and breaking the cycle of poverty.
We operate four shelters in the St. Louis Metro area that serve the neediest men, women and children in the region. Residents of these shelters are afforded up to 120 days to get back on their feet. They are provided with meals, beds and assistance with medical treatment and job searches. Once they are ready to transition to more permanent housing, Salvation Army case managers work to help them find suitable accommodations which will allow them to transition back into their lives successfully.
Can't make it, but would like to make a donation in support of The Salvation Army's work in the St. Louis area? Visit our page to make a donation.
