About The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County:

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1922, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 98 years.

At the Salvation Army, our doors are open every day and night of the year. Through our emergency housing facilities, homeless shelters, transitional living centers, group homes, and family shelters, we provide over 10 million nights of lodging annually. In addition to supplying shelter from the elements, beds, food, and basic hygiene resources to those in need, we help combat long-term homelessness in America by serving homeless adults, veterans, and children with holistic physical, emotional, and spiritual support.

Striving to solve homelessness in Miami, our shelter provides a safe transitional environment to up to 260 persons at a time including women, men, and families. A dedicated team of experts works consistently with the objective that our residents become self-sufficient and move to permanent housing, the average stay being 90 days. Services include all meals, periodical medical visits, assistance for benefits, and extensive case management to reach clients’ psychological, sociological, and concrete needs. HIV education, Narcotics and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings are available as needed.
