2015 Charity of the Year
C"Doing The Most Good" is The Salvation Army's national brand strategy and distinct identifiable message. Moreover, it is a promise the organization makes to its contributors, clients, associates, officers and employees. The Salvation Army pledges to Do The Most Good with contributions of money, time and resources, evidenced in that 82 cents of every dollar donated are directly allocated to services that assist
people in need.
There are a lot of reasons people need help with housing. Sometimes life doesn’t turn out the way we planned. Other times we experience unexpected circumstances in life, such as job loss or debt following a medical emergency. With one in six people living in poverty today, homelessness is not predictable or exclusive to a certain “type” of person – it could happen to anyone.
Whether you need a roof over your head for the night or you’re looking for an affordable place to call home for years, The Salvation Army has a number of transitional and permanent housing options in centers throughout Texas that can help. Thousands of people sleep safely every night because of these programs.
Emergency Housing Family Shelter
Women and even families find themselves homeless for a whole range of reasons. If you’ve no place to stay and need immediate help, The Salvation Army is there to provide a warm, safe place to stay the night. Many of our locations include emergency shelters that make provision for women, families and men where possible. In cities where we don’t have facilities, we will refer you to partner programs or provide financial assistance to cover emergency overnight housing costs when available.
