Each year in the United States, The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of lodging to those in need. Our group homes, emergency shelters, and transitional living centers provide housing, food, and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to families in crisis, the homeless, the displaced, and to youth. In Kent County, we work with a variety of community resources to prevent homelessness whenever we can, and rapidly re-house those who find themselves without housing.
