The Salvation Army Miami Area Command offers 236 beds distributed among three lodges that provide temporary housing to women and families, single men, veterans, and persons dealing with HIV/AIDS. 

These temporary programs are designed to empower residents to regain their independence and return to being self-sufficient members of our community.
