The Salvation Army’s Emergency Shelters
The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma operates three emergency shelters on site at its 1001 N. Pennsylvania Avenue, Oklahoma City location. Those shelters include: single men, single women, and families. The shelters are open to anyone who needs a clean, warm, safe place to stay. The comforts of home are not always available to many people because of a crisis in their lives.
Shelter is one of the first things that is addressed when we assist the less fortunate members of our society.
The Army shelters are open 365 days per year. Each person is required to go through case management to aid in making a plan of action to get back on their feet.
Giving a hand-up to these individuals helps to reintegrate them back into society as responsible citizens.
The family and women’s shelters gives displaced families and battered women a place to call home during a crisis. They are a safe haven, allowing every woman and family an opportunity for safety. For thousands each year, The Salvation Army becomes a home away from home where they can feel secure, a place where they can be nurtured physically, mentally and spiritually.
