The Salvation Army’s Social Service Ministry operates several unique programs in the local community such as being the only Emergency Shelter for homeless families and single women in Forsyth County. The fastest growing segment of the homeless population in America today are women with children. The Salvation Army Emergency Shelter is located inside The Salvation Army's Center of Hope at 1255 North Trade Street. The shelter can house 20 single women and has 64 beds for families. Shelter clients are assigned a case manager with the goal of achieving permanent housing for the clients. Where appropriate, counseling includes referrals to other agencies to assist residents with vocational training, family-skills, domestic violence, physical or mental illness, unemployment and other underlying causes of homelessness. The Salvation Army also operates a Supportive Housing Program for clients who stay for longer than 30 days and meet eligibility for ongoing supportive services. This involves the client in intensive case management services for a 6-month follow-up period after the client leaves the shelter and is placed in housing in the community. We also have a ShelterPlus Care program that allows us to provide Permanent Supportive Housing to those clients with a diagnosed disability. The Salvation Army's Emergency Shelter serves single women, women or men with children, or families (parents must provide marriage license). Minimum age for singles is 18. The shelter serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and provides housing referrals and transportation. Full service case management is available to all residents. Eligibility is needs-based. To set up an appointment to talk to a case manager, call 336 722-8721.
