While at McKinnell House, adults work with a case manager to formulate a plan that will help the family successfully move back into independent housing. Families are required to obtain employment, if not working, and children are connected to educational and support resources. After leaving McKinnell House, families have the continued support of their case manager to develop a support system that will better equip the family for successful, independent living.
Who is eligible?
We provide emergency shelter for homeless families with children. Those who are unable to provide for their basic needs and cannot obtain the necessary assistance from other public or private agencies. Other eligibility criteria are considered upon application.
Where would I stay?
McKinnell House is part of The Salvation Army Family Enrichment (SAFE) Center, located at 1712 A Street. The shelter has sixteen family rooms with private bathrooms. Common areas include a shared children's play room, parent lounge, educational classroom and beautiful dining room.
How long may I stay?
McKinnell House is a temporary emergency shelter, where families can stay for up to 30 days. However, as families move toward self-sufficiency, the length of stay for residents may be extended upon the recommendation of a case manager and approval of the director until permanent housing is secured. A case manager will work with each family in developing a basic plan of action to address their unique needs, with specific goals to help them successfully transition into independent housing.
