The Salvation Army provides a wide array of services to over 20,000 people in Broward County each year.
The agency provides transitional housing with support services to 50 families with children and 40 single individuals and emergency shelter to another 300 men and women each month. New Beginnings, a program for homeless pregnant women is unique in Broward County. It provides housing and support to women working to gain self sufficiency and a stable life for their children. A new program, The Open Door provides emergency shelter to chronically homeless people who are currently living on the streets.
In addition to housing homeless people, a food pantry supplies groceries to dozens of people each week and rent/mortgage assistance helps families in emergency situations avoid homelessness. Senior citizens enjoy weekly Home League programs and the holidays allow us to supply Christmas toys and cheer to 3400 children and Thanksgiving dinner to 400 needy people.
The Salvation Army has been active in Broward County since 1926.
