Transitional Housing

We are currently accepting applications for both Transitional Housing and 90-Day Housing

Transitional Programs: The Salvation Army provides temporary housing for families needing help to transition from homelessness into independent living. The program provides basic needs and services to families that are caught in the cycle of homelessness and are willing to commit to improving their lifestyle. Casa de Las Palmas and our Phase II Program offers residential care for a time period not to exceed 24 months to families willing to work toward a goal of self-sufficiency. Our goal is for families to secure permanent housing and to become independent and self-sufficient members of our community.

90-Day Program: The Salvation Army Frederiksen House currently provides shelter for homeless families for up to 90 days in the program facility. The goal of this program is to provide stability to the family while giving them the opportunity to secure employment and savings that will assist in establishing permanent housing. Clients also receive assistance with resumes, job searches, budgeting, and housing. In addition, the program provides ongoing case management and support in areas such as financial management, job skills, parenting skills and childcare referrals.
