Center of Hope Family Shelter
The Salvation Army Shelter programs are designed to move individuals from homelessness to permanent housing.
The Emergency Shelter program provides temporary housing for those who are in need of sheltering. All shelter residents are connected with resources to ensure stability and self-sufficiency. Our target population is single women or families that are in need of temporary housing. We focus on families in crisis who are experiencing homelessness due to an unexpected emergency beyond the client's control.
PATHWAY OF HOPE
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.
