Mission Statement

The Salvation Army Red Shield Family Residence is a family homeless shelter that seeks to provide families with professional, compassionate, nonjudgmental, and loving services in order to assist them with becoming self-sufficient.

Description

Homeless children are among the most at-risk in our society. Experiencing life within the homeless and social service systems often include having limited medical care, having trouble in school, having to make excessive adjustments, and experiencing trauma. In order to address these issues, as well as child development, family issues, parenting, and life skills within the shelter, the Red Shield Family Residence has created the "Bright Spaces" program. Bright Spaces is a play area, staffed by a social worker, that is set aside for parents and children to learn and play together, even as they experience the stresses of being homeless.
