Housing & Affordability
The Salvation Army, a faith-based nonprofit serving Miami since 1913, extends a resourceful hand of assistance to families in greatest need so that they may lift themselves from crisis to stability and independence. The Salvations Army Red Shield Lodge offers 280 beds distributed among three lodges: Men’s, Women and Family, and Here’s Hope (for the sick) that provide temporary housing to women and families, single men, veterans, and persons dealing with HIV/AIDS and/or other infirmities. These temporary programs are designed to empower residents to regain their independence and return to being self-sufficient members of our community. The Social Services Department is shaped as a support network that assists shelter residents with day-to-day care and services. This support system consists of Case Management, 24-hour and 7-days a week staff supervision, janitorial and kitchen staff. Additionally, the department offers life skills, short-term crisis counseling, employment resources, substance abuse classes, and group therapy.
