Salvation Army Red Shield Family Residence - Philadelphia, PA



The Salvation Army Red Shield Family Residence is a safe and welcoming emergency housing shelter offering loving, respectful, compassionate, and non-judgmental services in order to empower residents to strive towards self-sufficiency. All family configurations including families with teenaged children and single men with children are accepted. However the majority of our families are young mothers with infants.. Many of these women have aged out of the DHS system and are now entering the shelter system as homeless adults. They enter the shelter lacking basic life skills and parenting skills, having little to no actual work experience. The majority of these young mothers have self identified as victims of traumatic childhoods; physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; and neglect. In fact, seventy five percent of our residents have openly reported trauma histories.

The Salvation Army Red Shield Residence is a clean and sober facility. Clean and sober services are now handled jointly by the case mangers and RHD’s Connections program. Current drug an alcohol use seems to reflect that of the general population. Programs, such as Drexel's Caring Together, combining drug and alcohol treatment with mental heath treatment, seem to be most effective with this population.
