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 Northeast Ohio 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.

Nationally, The Salvation Army provides safe shelter to nearly 28,000 people every night through:

Shelters/Emergency Housing

Our shelter is more than just a roof over your head. Our staff works one-on-one with our residents in order to help them make the most out of their time with us.

We also make sure that our residents are served 3 meals a day (including a lunch with the Soup Kitchen). We serve over 1,000 meals in a given month.

Transitional Housing

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.

Rent Assistance

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.

Utility Assistance

During a long, cold winter, your heat bill swells and you receive a notice from your energy provider that all utilities will be disconnected unless you can pay the overdue balance. Or, maybe a job loss forced you to choose between paying rent or paying your electric bill. You chose rent and just received an electric shut off notice.

We can help.For more information, please contact

Cooling and Warming Shelters

In Northeast Ohio, the 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.
