The Salvation Army offers shelter, food, spiritual and physical care for people in need. Salvation Army shelters are designed to attend to the total needs of the individual and are meant to be a safe resting place to help shelter residents get back on their feet. To be housed the first night, each prospective resident at The Center of Hope must have a picture ID. After the first night, individuals who want to stay additional nights will need to get a shelter clearance from the Richmond County Sheriff’s office located at 400 Walton Way. Although clients are allowed eight free nights of stay, case management is available for extended stays based on progress to stability. The goal of case management is to go from being homeless to being stably housed. For more information, or to set up an appointment with a case worker to find out more about our 369 program, please call 706.826.7933.
