Class of Housing: Transitional Housing

General Information:

The Salvation Army in Tyler is the only residential shelter in the area that serves both men, women, and children; we also operate both an emergency shelter and a transitional living shelter and programs. All residents of either program are able to receive hot meals to feed their bellies, to wash their clothes for safety and health, to sleep soundly in safety, and to receive counseling and spiritual guidance.

Emergency Housing
Emergency housing is available for those who wish to only stay 1-5 nights in our shelter. Those who are passing through town, those who have temporary housing problems due to a disaster, and those who prefer to be homeless but are forced indoors by heat, cold, or bad weather seek refuge in our shelter. These residents are not required to participate in a work program or enter our transitional shelter. They are however, encouraged to consider if they would like to be a part of our larger community while developing their own self-sufficiency abilities.

Transitional Housing
Individuals and families that find themselves homeless but are eager to find their way again enter our transitional housing program, which includes a work component. The H.E.L.P. (Holistic Employment and Life-skills Placement) Program, a 90-120 day work program, empowers our residents. Counseling services, transportation, recreational activities, spiritual guidance, hot meals, clean clothes, and more await those who enter into this program to build their life back, one block at a time. Obtaining and maintaining employment, building savings, receiving physical and mental health services, and more are the services provided and steps taken to provide these residents a hand up and not a hand out.
