Lubbock’s Salvation Army has received a hefty grant from the federal government to help prevent homelessness. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded a three-year grant of over $845,000 to the Salvation Army of Lubbock, to cover operational costs of their Red Shield Home Transitional Living Program.

With the grant, the group plans to take a three-tiered approach to eradicating cyclical homelessness in the area, which includes emergency sheltering, transitional sheltering, and transitional housing.

The Emergency Sheltering Program provides free shelter for homeless men, women, and families at all times for up to three nights every 90 days. The emergency shelter has 48 beds, and provides shower and laundry facilities, in addition to voicemail and postal services.

The Transitional Sheltering Program is a 30 to 60 day program that helps families become self-sufficient again, while being provided with basic needs and shelter. This program is often used by single parents supporting multiple children.

The Transitional Housing Program runs from six months to two years, and provides housing and support services to those trying to get out of poverty, and eliminate the constant threat of homelessness. The transitional program can serve six to nine families at a time.

The three-tiered approach is expected to go into effect this fall.
