Fight homelessness and spread hope.
Tonight in America, 421,392 people are without a place to call home.
On top of that, most families living in poverty spend at least half their incomes on housing—which means any unexpected expense could send them down the spiral of housing instability, eviction and homelessness.
And yet, having a safe and stable place to live is at the very foundation of overall health and well-being.
That’s why, in The Salvation Army, there’s no such thing as no place to go.
Give the gift of transformation.
As the only provider of social services in every U.S. zip code, The Salvation Army uniquely understands that the statistics on those experiencing homelessness don’t provide a full picture of need. With one in 10 people living in poverty today, housing insecurity is not limited to a certain “type” of person.
Need can affect anyone.
A $100 donation will provide 3 nights of safe shelter.
That’s why The Salvation Army welcomes an average of 30,000 people every night to safe shelter across the U.S. — and we’ve been at it since 1865.
From emergency shelters to utility assistance or permanent supportive housing, we meet the need for refuge.
Your gift will help The Salvation Army transform a life.
A gift of $100 will help The Salvation Army provide three nights of safe shelter to someone in need near you.

Words From Our Community
“When I first came here, I remember laying in bed saying, ‘God, this is what it feels like to be home again.’” – Julia
“It’s more than just providing a good and safe place for people to be. It’s introducing them to Jesus Christ.” – Jim
“We were overwhelmed by the love people from the corps gave us—everything you can think about. They came with the truck to pick up up, they drove us to the church apartment and they told us, ‘hang out here as we figure out what’s next’.” – Stephen
“When I walk through the shelter, I see a mom. I see a dad. I see a child that belongs to a family. God has still got a plan for every individual. This mission that we have is a vital one…we don’t want people stuck in this continual cycle of poverty and homelessness. We want to give people an opportunity to move forward.” – Captain Nesan Kistan
