Many otheir service centers provide housing help through rent assistance. Additionally, about 350 people each night rely on The Salvation Army for a warm bed at one of our emergency, transitional or permanent-supportive housing programs.
Emergency housing is exactly that, a temporary, one-night-at-a-time place to sleep safely. It’s a starting point where people in need can begin the process of stability and healing. Harbor Light Center in Minneapolis offers emergency housing for single adults and Booth Brown House in St. Paul is for young adults ages 18-21.
The Salvation Army also offer previously homeless people stable, transitional housing and crisis support for up to two years at our housing facilities. Harbor Light Center has units for single men and women, including options reserved for veterans. The Foyer housing program at Booth Brown House has 10 transitional, efficiency apartments for young people ages 16-25. We also help people transition to market-rate housing or housing supported by the government or other nonprofit agencies.
While low-cost housing is an important piece of the puzzle, many people also need long-term support and guidance from trained case workers. That is what their permanent-supportive housing does. While guests can stay in these housing units as long as they’d like, our goal is to get them to a place of stability. HOPE Harbor is a 96-unit efficiency apartment building in Minneapolis for low-income single adults and the chronically homeless. Booth Manor is a 10-story apartment building for low-income seniors. Our Foyer housing program at Booth Brown House also has 25 permanent-supportive apartments for young adults ages 18-25. While we specialize broadly in care for singles, there are 16 family units in the north metro area for Sherburne County and Wright County. Harvest Hills is a community of eight townhouses for families struggling with medical challenges.
