(San Bernardino, Calif.) The Salvation Army Corps of San Bernardino has moved from its downtown location on Fifth Street to its new location at 2626 Pacific Avenue, San Bernardino, CA 92346. The new location is just down the street from Pacific High School and next door to the San Bernardino City soccer fields.
The move happened almost a year ago in early May, however the Salvation Army continues to serve meals at the Fifth Street location at 4:45 p.m. every day. “Because of our meals service has not stopped, some people don’t know we moved,” said Major Henderson.
Last year The Salvation Army served 89,282 meals to the hungry, much of that at the Fifth street location. The Salvation Army supports those in need without discrimination.
“The plan is to move daily meal service to our Hospitality House, located on 10th street, after necessary remodeling and expansion is completed. The Hospitality House and Transitional Living Center move families and single women from homelessness to permanent housing in as few as 18 months. People leaving our program are equipped to live life successfully,” said Major Henderson.
“The Transitional Living Center is a successful program with 94 percent of families completing the program to exit to permanent housing,” said Anne Metu, MILR, CADC-II director of the Transitional Housing Center and Homeless Shelter.
“It is important for those in need, and the people that help them, to know our offices have moved to the new location,” said Major Henderson.
“The Salvation Army serves people in need of help providing food, lodging for homeless or displaced families and single women; clothing and furniture; and transportation when funds are available. Our new 10,000 square foot facilities gives us more room for children’s after school programs, church services, character building programs for youth, and other needed services.”
Since 1887, the San Bernardino Corps has helped residents of the San Bernardino area overcome life’s challenges. Its current service area is San Bernardino, Highland, Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace and Rialto.
