Fred Alexander Center of Hope
The Salvation Army Shelter programs are designed to move individuals from homelessness to permanent housing.
The Emergency Shelter program provides transit housing for those who are in need of a good night's rest. Guests can stay up to fourteen nights and then exit the program or apply for our Shelter Plus program.
Shelter Plus Program
The Shelter Plus program allows individuals and families to stay in our facility for up to three months with the option to extend, determined on a case-by-case basis. Through acceptance into our programs we provide the following services: personalized case management, life skills classes, weekly resident meetings, and networking with other agencies.
PATHWAY OF HOPE PROGRAM
Pathway of Hope is an approach to providing targeted services to families with a desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and enable a path out of intergenerational poverty. It is rooted in a case management approach, focusing on client needs through a strength-based lens. By positively influencing the lives of parents, the Salvation Army can create better living conditions for children. Influencing children in their development years is crucial: the longer a child is in poverty, the greater the chance he or she will remain in poverty as an adult. Children who are in poverty for more than half of their childhood are 32x more likely to be in poverty as an adult. Over time, helping families achieve stability could reduce the dependence of future generations on Salvation Army services.Through the Pathway of Hope, The Salvation Army will make a lasting difference in reducing intergenerational poverty across the United States, transforming the lives of 100,000 families by 2030 by increasing HOPE and STABILITY. In High Point, the program was implemented in May of 2016 and is currently working with families in the Center of Hope.
