Shelter is Open During Summer

This year, contrary to past practices, The Salvation Army Berberian Homeless Shelter has remained open for the summer months as well as during the winter. They continue to be filled to capacity every night with people who need a safe place to stay and a nutritious meal. Groups and individuals are needed to provide meals. Call Sharon at 525-8954.

Though there are so many who still need help, there are also many success stories of those who have used the “safety net” provided by The Salvation Army. Many of these guests have been able to improve their situations and now have gainful employment and a place of their own. The goal of The Salvation Army program is to change lives, one at a time. Guests are treated with dignity and respect and provided clean clothing, showers, clean beds and nourishing meals. Many are trained in skills needed to move from homelessness to hopefulness. Others only need the provision of temporary short-term help because of an emergency or loss of income.
