Salvation Army Family And Transitional Shelter Broward County

The Salvation Army provides an emergency shelter for men and women at the Red Shield Lodge. They also provide a family transitional housing location in Hollywood, FL. See the details below.

Transitional housing is not a short term solution to homelessness. Clients may stay in the program for up to two years, working to make positive, lasting changes in their lives. The goal for people in transitional housing is to overcome the obstacles that led them to homelessness in the first place and to eventually move to stable, permanent housing.

Poverty and homelessness present obstacles that seem insurmountable to those who are experiencing them. Even the most determined people have a difficult time negotiating their way out of a situation when they have no resources - no home, no transportation, no appropriate clothing and no way to put together a resume. More devastating is the loss of confidence and self esteem produced by the loss of a job and home. The Salvation Army in Broward County provides the specific and on going assistance required to enable our clients to achieve and maintain economic self sufficiency.

The Salvation Army in Broward County has 50 apartments for families in two locations as well as lodging for 80 single men and women. Residents are helped to identify the underlying issues that brought them into their current situations and to develop practical strategies to return to mainstream society.Case management, and life skills including budgeting and parenting classes are some of the ways we help our clients make permanent, positive changes in their lives.

For more details call the office at the phone number provided from 8am - 5pm Mondays through Fridays.

Office Hours: Monday-Friday 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

    Good evening, I am interested and in transitional housing. I am in an unsafe living situation with moderate to severe violence and control and seek a better living situation until I gain the financial independence to provide it myself. At the moment I am in no immediate danger but the situation is taking on a pattern of physical violence escalation that makes me very concerned. My attempts to leave are met with various forms of retaliation so I am looking for a safe place where I can recover from the situation and gain independence. I wanted to know how to get into the transitional housing project as soon as it would be possible. I am an educated person without past or present addictions. I tolerated the violence hoping it would stop but I feel it is getting worse. I feel the perpetrators are restricting my freedom and asserting control over my ability to interact with people and even ability to leave. I am 41 years old. Given the escalating pattern and loss of personal freedom I seek a living situtation as soon as possible. Basically I seek a safe shelter where I can participate to an extent in paying for it until I have enough to provide myself. How can I get into this type of program and is there a waitig list or requirements I need to fulfill? I await your answer. Sincerely Ewa
