By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.
46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away.
Sadly, children raised in poverty are 32% more likely to remain there than their more fortunate peers.
Poverty is so often the result of and the catalyst for chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it.
Housing insecurity and prolonged poverty are strongly linked, and that's why we work to provide short and long-term housing assistance to displaced families and individuals. The Salvation Army offers many programs that offer refuge to struggling men, women, children and families from overnight and emergency shelters for those finding themselves homeless for the first time to transitional living centers that help rebuild lives.
There are several shelters in the Denver Metro area, for help please call (303) 295-3366.
