The Salvation Army Veterans and Family Center is a transitional housing center for homeless veterans and their families. While at the Center, veterans and their families receive case management to navigate the Veterans Administration, help finding employment and housing, education, and more. Most importantly, they have a roof over their heads as they work to become self-sufficient again. It is a per-diem program through the Veterans Administration, and all funds raised for the program go to bettering the lives of the men and women who live there.
