Salvation Army Shelters Open 24/7 Due to Stay-at-Home Order

Due to the statewide Stay-at-Home order, all Salvation Army shelters in Alabama will be operating 24/7. All social services will still be provided, by appointment, to practice a safe social distancing.

Thrift stores will remain closed until the order is lifted.

The Salvation Army of Montgomery currently has 19 residents. The shelter serves three meals a day and only has enough food to last throughout the next three weeks. They are still distributing groceries to families throughout Montgomery community that have been impacted by COVID-19. The administrative office hours are now 9 am – 12 pm and you should call to schedule a grocery pickup time.

The Salvation Army says cleaning has increased throughout the shelter due to extended hours.
