The Salvation Army Home Sweet Home Program helps prevent homelessness and support residential stability by providing homeless and at-risk households the tools to effectively budget and manage income and expenses.
Through The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home Program, professional case workers, along with friends or partners in the community, can prevent homelessness not only at the point of family eviction, but beyond.
To put a family back together after it is broken requires more time, skills and financial resources than many families have available. Through financial education, case management, financial assistance (1-6 months) and monthly budgeting, families may be spared months of misery, saving the community thousands of dollars in sheltering and rehabilitation.
To be selected as a participant in the Home Sweet Home Program, a family must show a strong desire to change, improve their family’s situation and work within the program’s guidelines.
Salvation Army programs and services vary with local needs. For information on specific programs and locations, contact your local Salvation Army Corps Community Center.
