Homeless Shelters

For those without a place to call home, The Salvation Army many times means the difference between safety and danger. 

Women with children, for years, have been coming off the streets through The Salvation Army’s Family Residence shelter for adult women with families. Located in downtown Houston, this facility not only offers them a place to live, but also the resources they will need to stay off the streets once they leave.

A few blocks down, Sally’s House (originally named after the slang word for The Salvation Army in the homeless communities throughout Houston) offers a transitional program for adult single women who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, and who are living on the streets.

 The Harbor Light Center and the Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) – two more of The Salvation Army’s rehabilitation facilities – help adult men overcome their addictions to drugs and/or alcohol, and provide them a transition out of homelessness. Each night in Houston at least 600 homeless people find shelter at one of The Salvation Army’s facilities.

Outside of Houston, Conroe Corps Community Center offers emergency shelter to those in need. In times of uncertainty and often, despair, The Salvation Army's transitional shelter has been there to help those struggling to stand firmly on their own two feet. The emergency shelter operates at capacity nearly every day of the year. The 40-bed capacity will be expanded through the Giving for Living Capital Campaign.

During inclement weather, the Harbor Light Center opens its doors to all transients and does not refuse anyone. Because of the generous donations from our community all these programs and services are offered completely free of charge.
