Center of Hope Emergency Shelter

Life Renewed

"I came to California from Detroit due to a cycle of domestic violence. Upon arrival here, I met one of your case managers, and they began to connect me to the services I so desperately needed. I stayed at the emergency shelter until I could find my own apartment. I want to thank The Salvation Army for helping me out during the worst time of my life. Thank you very much."

A Safe Refuge

The Salvation Army's Center of Hope in Sacramento, California has made changes in response to COVID-19. Watch as Shelter Supervisor Christina Kitchen walks us through the halls and dorms at the facility that's changing lives every day.
