The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has a rich heritage of meeting human need without discrimination. We are uniquely poised to make a difference towards an alleviation and solution for the problem of homelessness. We operate three shelters in in Santa Cruz County (2 in Santa Cruz and 2 in Watsonville), and shelter a total of 160 nightly. As a part of our sheltering program, we feed 350 meals a day. In addition we provide an average of 120 sack lunches for homeless through out the week as is needed. We are proud to embrace the burden and responsibility to serve those in need.
