501 Broadway St
Quincy, IL - 62301
Hours: 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. The Shelter is located across the street from the Salvation Army Kroc Community Center.
The new shelter area of the building can house up to 16 people with rooms dedicated to single men and women as well as families. The building also houses our Family Services operation & Food Pantry. This shelter is the only one within a 100 mile radius that serves this population.
During their stay, residents will be required to look for a job, if they are unemployed, save money to move into a place of their own, and meet with a caseworker on a regular basis. Our goal is to provide a comfortable, safe environment for our residents. Meals, laundry facilities, phone calls and other needed items are all provided for those staying in the shelter. A normal stay in the Emergency Shelter is 30 days, but could be longer or shorter depending on the clientâ€™s situation.
The Salvation Army Emergency Shelter serves the greater Adams County area as well as transients who have come to our community and find themselves in a homeless situation.
