Programs and Services Information

Emergency Family Homeless Shelter
Our emergency shelter is open 365 days a year to provide a safe, clean refuge for men, women, families, and women with children. Our guests are provided with sleeping accommodations, hot meals, showers(including towels and toiletries), and clothes. We also offer a VA Permanent Supportive Housing Program.

Daily Meals for the Homeless
Hunger and proper nutrition are ongoing issues for people on the streets. To address this need, we serve three hot meals a day in our on-site cafeteria for any and all who show up. The free meals are balanced and nutritious to help meet a person’s most basic need.

Home Sweet Home
This homeless prevention program is for at-risk individuals and families that are on the verge of losing their homes. The goals of this program are to prevent homelessness, support home ownership, and build healthy and self-sufficient families. We value the empowerment, hope, self esteem, independence and dignity of our program participants.

Simon Transitional Housing Program
This program is for unaccompanied single men and women over age 18 who have a dual diagnosis of mental illness and drug/alcohol addiction. In collaboration with other Tarrant County homeless service agencies, the Simon program provides room and board, as well as life skills, counseling and case management for up to two years.

S.T.A.R.T. Program
The acronym stands for Stabilizing to Achieve Richer Tomorrows. The program is designed to give people who are shackled by a repetitive cycle of homelessness a new start in life. Case managers function as mentors for each person in their care and will actually accompany people from place to place helping them to establish relationships and make the arrangements necessary to move to independent living. Participants are required to save up to 75% of all income received. Upon successful completion, participants can transition into the Home Sweet Home follow-up program or another housing placement program.

First Choice Program
The First Choice program is a voluntary, long-term residential treatment program uniquely designed for chemically dependent women and their children. Participants receive a wide range of services for up to 12 months, including a private room with bath, transportation, off-site day care, group therapy, 12-step meetings (Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous), substance abuse counseling, experiential learning activities, life skills, parental training, family counseling, money management, and individual counseling.

The Salvation Army Lancaster Reconnect Corps is committed to reconnecting people to daily fellowship with our LORD JESUS CHRIST. We are a people that exist to seek only our LORD JESUS CHRIST, serve HIS people, and show love unconditionally. We invite everyone to worship with us every Sunday at 10:30 a.m., and join us for Bible studies on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

The Salvation Army Veterans Enrichment program provides permanent housing, long-term comprehensive case management, and supportive services for chronically homeless, disabled veterans. Designed to stabilize housing, increase income through job training/placement, and enhance self-determination, S.A.V.E.‘s mission is to meet a veteran’s most urgent needs as rapidly as possible.
