A Recovery-Focused Homeless Initiative

San Francisco is experiencing a humanitarian crisis. We’re here to deliver a solution.

Homelessness, drug addiction, and untreated mental illness is all around us. But it doesn’t have to be. The Salvation Army believes that every person who wants a way out should have it. On any given night in San Francisco, The Salvation Army provides housing to 750 people who are unstably housed or struggling with addiction.

Providing a Proven Path. For Anyone Who Wants It.
