As long as there's The Salvation Army, there's no such thing as 'no place to go.' The Salvation Army provides safe shelter to nearly 30,000 people every night through a variety of programs.
Our group homes, emergency shelters and transitional living centers provide housing, food and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. In addition, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

Each year at our Stockton ARC, 100+ men successfully overcome alcohol and drug dependence.
Each year, The Salvation Army equips nearly 150,000 people across the United States to overcome alcohol and drug dependence. Here in Stockton, we focus on the following to help men and women combat addiction and prepare to reenter their communities whole and healthy again.
The Salvation Army's drug and alcohol programs are social model, work therapy programs. That means that we don't "treat" addictions with more drugs.
Instead, we train men and women in Stockton to live without drugs and alcohol through a 6-month, residential program that helps them learn about themselves, their addictions - and the God who made them and wants to set them free.
Holistic work-therapy, combined with group and individual counseling, 12-step programs, spiritual direction, and life skills development, helps residents learn to live victoriously without drugs and alcohol. We think that's a pretty powerful combination.
