The Transitional Housing Program of the Salvation Army
was created for families and single women. It includes two programs:
In addition, the agency provides each client with a case manager.
Thirty Day Program
Includes 18 beds
Includes nine bed rooms, each containing two beds, two dressers and a night stand. Clients staying in the emergency shelter use a community bathroom.
This is a room in the Emergency Shelter. The agency takes precautions to best ensure that each client is comfortable in the facility. Each client MUST have a certain amount of living space. In addition, the agency keeps the rooms clean and organized.
These cribs (seen in storage) are waiting to be used by female clients with a child/expecting a child.
The facility provides children living in the agency with a play room where “kids make the rules.”
ALL staff members hired by the Salvation army in the transitional housing unit are required to learn how to cook healthy meals for the residents. The Salvation Army provides residents food from Olive Garden, Old Chicago, Red Lobster and other local restaurants.
Collectively, the group was impressed by the services provided by the Salvation Army of Wichita Kansas. We are grateful that single women and mothers (two populations that are very prone to poverty) have a quality shelter to turn to when they are down on their luck for whatever reason (unemployment, domestic abuse, drug addition, etc.). The agency does its best to alter and add services to best serve the ever-changing and diverse needs of clients.
