Every year The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of shelter to those in need
Our doors are always open to anyone without a place to call home.
Sometimes life doesn’t turn out how we planned. Our emergency, transitional or permanent housing options across New York can help. At The Salvation Army, we have an open door policy when it comes to those needing help with housing - whether they need a place to rest their head inside our doors or need help finding a way to stay in their own home. All are welcome, and every night, we help thousands of men, women, youth and children sleep safely and dream of a better tomorrow.
Everyone is welcome to come to The Salvation Army to get out of the bitter cold, intense heat, heavy rains, or just to have a safe place to spend the night. With every bed also comes a nutritious meal and a clean shower. We operate shelters across New York for single men and women, with some areas able to accommodate young adults and even families.
When you need a place to stay during the “in-between,” our transitional housing program offers shelter until you find a permanent place to live. If you’ve been evicted, are dealing with an addiction, face a domestic break-up or have another type of housing crisis, contact your local Salvation Army to find out what transitional housing options are available in your area. We offer temporary housing and support services for up to six months to low-income, single men and women, and some areas are able to accommodate young adults and families.
We want to help people find a place to call home. When you need a long-term housing solution, one of our permanent housing facilities may be a good fit. Our housing options range from supportive housing facilities to apartments for vulnerable young adults learning independence. We also have complexes for homeless adults and families.
When you don’t know where the money for your next rent payment is coming from, check with your local Worship and Service Center to see if funding is available for rent assistance. This type of funding ebbs and flows, but if we can help, we will.
Weather can be unpredictable. The homeless population is most vulnerable during the hottest and coldest months of the year. Many times extreme weather can even be life threatening for those without a place to seek shelter. This is why we open our doors to become cooling and warming stations to ensure the safety of these individuals when it's needed most.
