The homeless face extraordinary barriers in meeting basic human needs. Hunger is a major issue that The Salvation Army works to alleviate.
Through a partnership with the Transitions homeless shelter, The Salvation Army operates the Meals Service to the Homeless program and provides nutritious meals to the homeless, three meals a day, 365 days a year.
The Salvation Army of the Midlands served 188,931 meals in 2013.
In addition, we send a case manager to the Day Center at Transitions each weekday afternoon to serve "walk-in" homeless individuals. The Salvation Army case manager provides information to Day Center users about housing stabilization and other agencies.
Transitions is located at 2025 Main Street in Columbia.
Volunteer opportunities are often available at Transitions to help serve meals and perform other duties as assigned. For more information on how to volunteer, please contact Jennifer Lambert at 803-309-0436 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
