Stevens Point Programs and Services
Serving Our Community
At The Salvation Army Hope Center we believe in meeting the basic needs of individuals and families, young and old. These basic needs include food, clothing, shelter and household needs. While meeting the physical needs, The Salvation Army staff also offer hope and guidance to those coming in for services. Basic need services are available Monday through Friday by appointment. Individuals or families meet with a staff person in a quiet, confidential setting and determine what type and how much assistance can be provided.
The Salvation Army Hope Center is a short term emergency shelter, with a capacity of 35. We provide shelter to single men, single women, and families with children.
Food Pantry – Our food pantry is open Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM as well as for emergencies.
Meals Served – We also serve 3 meals a day, 365 days a year. Breakfast begins at 6:00 am, lunch is served at noon and dinner is served at 5:30 pm. All meals are open to the public and all are welcome to join us.
• Pathway of Hope - The Salvation Army offers holistic and strengths based case management services to families with children who have a desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and attain a level of increased stability. Families will work in partnership with their case manager and ministry staff to develop an action plan as well as assess their strengths and progress while receiving support and encouragement to reach their goals.
Our everyday services are:
- Emergency supplemental food
- Limited amounts and types of clothing
There are no charges for any of our services.
We also have a Supportive Housing program. Clients are usually chosen from Hope Center clients.
The Hope Center is just that, a place of hope for those who have little or none left. With a family-type environment, the Hope Center provides a warm bed for those who are in need of emergency shelter for a given period of time.
Residents meet with an advocate to create a plan, just for them, to get back on their feet again. The Hope Center is not a place for a hand out, it's a place for a hand up.
Hot meals are served daily for those who are in need of something at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Simply sign in and enjoy. The meals are prepared that same day and served in a cafeteria-style dining facility.
