Emergency Assistance Program provides aid to individuals and families who are in need of immediate assistance. Services provided are based on the need of the client and available resources such as food, clothing, furniture, prescription, fire victim assistance, transportation, rent / mortgage and utility assistance.

Emergency Shelter Program was established as a place where the needy in the city could go to get a hot meal and free lodging for the night. Overnight guests seeking an in-house shelter program may meet with a case manager to be screened to determine eligibility. All participants are expected to cooperate with the rules of the shelter and to cooperate with the residential policy and procedures of The Salvation Army.

Created 2 Work Program offers temporary housing and potential employment opportunities for homeless individuals who have no other options for shelter due to a personal crisis, and is currently unemployed or underemployed; but are physically and mentally capable, and also willing to obtain employment to improve their financial status and obtain permanent housing.

The Transitional Housing Program is a live in, seven months to two years program for homeless families designed to motivate, support and assist residents to obtain permanent housing. Eligible residents for the program are single mothers with children.

The Families Program is a live in three-month program designed to assess needs through case management and provide with ongoing services to homeless single women / single men with children in need of shelter who are seeking permanent housing. C

enter of HopeSeniors and Individuals with Disabilities Services According to The Salvation Army data, the baby boomers, (55-plus age) is the fastest-growing population in the country. In addition, many seniors work their entire lives earning minimum wage at nonunion jobs. Sometimes they are left with no other cushion of savings; thereby when hard times prevail they are unfortunately the most vulnerable to become homeless. This makes a compelling argument for the Center of Hope to have a program that provides assurances for senior benefits. Educational classes and seminars would be the conduit for this assistance as to obtain and secure benefits.
