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 Center of Hope Men’s and Women’s Shelter provides those in need with a safe refuge, including sleeping accommodations, two meals a day, showers, use of laundry facilities and other programs. This 125-bed facility provides homeless men and women a 30-day stay and the potential for three additional 10-day extensions (for a total of a 60-day maximum stay).

In addition to food and lodging, our clients may receive:

  • Spiritual and emotional counseling
  • Employment referral services
  • Information and referral to help resolve with legal issues
  • Help reconnecting with family members


Permanent Solutions

Our goal is to help our clients increase their self-sufficiency for the long term.

A Case Manager assists each client to assess their current needs, and focuses effort on providing housing referral services to those who are ready to move into a stable housing situation.

Our Shelter staff networks extensively with permanent housing providers and other resources throughout the County to assist clients with their housing placement and starting their new lives.
