There is no single portrait of homelessness. Sometimes families lose their homes because of money; women grab their children and run from abusive husbands; an illness strips a person of work; a layoff comes unannounced. In addition to basic needs, clients receive case management, intervention programs, health care, child care for young children, and guidance for school-age children and teens.
The Salvation Army is a leader in providing individuals and families with a successful way out of homelessness. Each program is graduated to step clients from the point of crisis to the point of resolution.
