The goal of The Salvation Army Homeless Services is to help individuals gain the skills and resources necessary to transition from homelessness to a higher level of productive independent living. Services range from meeting individuals' immediate needs to long term goal attainment. Case management, shelter facilities and other transformational resources are available on our Lied Social Services Campus.
Day Resource Center/
The Shelter is open 365 days a year with a Day Resource Center to access, triage, and refer clients to our programs that can provide the long term help they might need.
Each day an average of 350 individuals come to us for a reprieve from the weather, take a shower, use the restrooms, hydrate, or make telephone calls; simple, basic needs that we can sometimes take for granted.
In 2011, approx 2,600 men and 700 women received overnight shelter.
We strive to help our clients obtain the income and locate housing that they may function as self-sufficient, independent citizens of the community. We want to ultimately eliminate homelessness in Las Vegas by leading homeless individuals to employment and housing that they will achieve productive lives.
Working in partnership with the College of Southern Nevada, local businesses, and state agencies, our clients receive academic training and practical work experience in a variety of fields. Along with classes in life skills and essential employment tools, these programs truly transform lives.
The Chapels at the Lied Social Services Campus and treatment center provide the homeless with nightly services as well as needed counseling and guidance by the resident chaplain.
