Social Services

During hard times, The Salvation Army of Greater Houston is here to meet basic needs. Through the Social Services Department, case managers work with clients to build relationships and establish trust in order to resolve underlying issues and ensure future success and financial stability.

The Social Services office in downtown Houston guides clients toward obtaining and maintaining stable housing. Case managers collaborate with individuals and families to find safe and affordable housing, establish plans to meet financial and housing goals, and connect with resources for  rent/mortgage, utility, food and clothing assistance.

The downtown office has specialized programs to meet the unique needs of Veteran families and homeless young adults (ages 18 to 25), including a Young Adult Resource Center that provides them a safe place to socialize, learn and grow.

The Social Services office in Fort Bend County provides short-term emergency assistance to residents living in the county.

Social service assistance can also be found at Conroe and Pasadena Corps Community Centers. Caseworkers connect families to organizations that are able to serve their particular needs. They also have a food pantry on-site and provide financial assistance.

Program partially funded by Harris County Community Services Department, and the City of Houston Housing and Community Development through the Child Care Council of Greater Houston, Inc.
