Adult Services

Everyone needs a glimmer of hope

 

Addiction and Rehabilitation

Every 11 minutes someone in America dies from an opioid overdose. In New York, more people died from an opioid overdose last year than from car accidents and homicides combined. This epidemic grips individuals in the heart of New York City and in our quietest suburbs. The rate of unintentional drug overdose deaths continues to increase year after year.

The Salvation Army is the largest provider in the nation of free residential drug rehabilitation services in the country, helping 150,000 people a year to overcome addiction. Locally, we operate five adult rehabilitation centers that are funded by the sale of goods donated to our family stores.

Anti-Human Trafficking

Approximately 403,000 people are trafficked in the United States every year, and 98% are women. More than 1,000 cases are reported annually in the Greater New York area and the majority of cases involve minors that have run away from home.

The Salvation Army has 28 anti-trafficking programs nationwide, including P.E.A.R.L. Essence (Purposed, Empowered, Appreciated, Respected, Loved) in New York City. Monthly mobile outreach offers women an uplifting gift and connections to resources. We work closely with local and federal law enforcement to identify opportunities for victims to escape their traffickers and to provide secure housing until they can safely return to society.

Services for Seniors

Nearly one in six New Yorkers are at least 65 years old or older. This is a larger share of the state’s population than ever before. The number of older adults in poverty increased by a staggering 11% in 2018.

Through our bustling programs, The Salvation Army provides enriching classes and socialization for seniors. One community center in Brooklyn provides a vibrant and active outlet for neighborhood seniors in the form of dance, Tai Chi, Chinese Opera, ESL classes, computer literacy, table tennis, and much more. Other opportunities by which we support the senior population include camp retreats, an independent senior living complex, regular visits to extended care facilities, programs, and social services throughout our 38 community centers.

Developmental Disabilities Services

Thirty million Americans have a family member or know someone close to them with an intellectual or developmental disability. 198,590 New Yorkers receive support services for various developmental disabilities throughout the year.

For individuals living in our seven Developmental Disabilities Services (DDS) homes, The Salvation Army is a surrogate family. Professional staff supervises each home, helping with day-to-day tasks, coaching residents toward self-sufficiency, arranging special excursions, and offering each resident the love they deserve. Individuals are placed at residences in their borough of origin so that their family members can visit them with ease.
