ABOUT THE SALVATION ARMY:
Food Pantry In the United States, it is difficult to acknowledge that there are individuals and families who are hungry. The Salvation Army Food Pantry provides groceries to members of our community who are struggling with this most basic of needs. Clothing Assistance More families are finding it difficult to buy the basic clothing needs for their families. Your donations of gently used clothing assist us to ensure that these items reach the most in need within our community. Hygiene Packs Both individual and family packs are provided offering the means to enable people to care not only for their outward appearance but to enhance their health and wellbeing. Christmas Assistance Lack of adequate income prevents many families from providing Christmas gifts for their children. The Salvation Army’s Christmas Assistance program depends on generous gifts and contributions from caring individuals. Each donated gift is matched to a child, then parents come to the center the week before Christmas to collect those donated gifts. Lunch Program A hot meal is served 5 days a week 12-1pm. Our lunch program on average will serve 150 daily. We depend on the generosity of the local community to help us do this. Our program is fully staffed by volunteers who give a commitment to work on the program 1 day a week. This program has supplied over 50,000 meals in the last 2 years. Snack Bags An increasing issue is the number of homeless people trying to survive in this area and we have no shelter for them. The Salvation Army’s nearest shelter is in Denton or Dallas and these are often full. The Salvation Army’s vehicle goes out as many times as the supplies and resources allow with food and water for those in need. Furniture Items of need are requested by clients who often have nothing or very little. We try to meet that need by passing on donated items of furniture and household items.

ABOUT SOLUTIONS OF NORTH TEXAS:
Transitional Living – Our laser focused mission is and always has been to provide superior housing for men and women who are currently struggling with alcoholism and/or drug addiction. SoberDorm – Our Student Program. With our campus adjacent to TWU, UNT and just 8 miles from NCTC. Our proximity of higher education options make our SoberDorm Program an excellent choice for students in recovery. Interventions – Whether In-House or Contracted with one of our many Endorsed Providers, sometimes an Intervention is your very best option to leverage an Affected Loved-One into Recovery before it’s too late. More The Family Solution – is a program that involves the Entire Family utilizing family meetings, case management, drug/alcohol screening, monitoring, education, and accountability to one another. Once the family unit is working together as its own support system the chances for permanent recovery are considerably increased. Failure to Launch – Often we come across a family housing and supporting an adult child who will not leave the nest for one reason or another. Out of our experience, we have developed a very fair and supportive program leveraging the adult child into accountability and self-sufficiency. Case Management – From Progress Reviews to Exit Strategies, we simply do not just “house” men and women. We are preparing them for a self-sufficient life in the community among their peers. Since one cannot hide from drugs and alcohol, we must acquire the necessary skills to live and work like everyone else. Our Case Management by design keeps our residents on the path of progress and points out when they are starting to veer off course. Drug/Alcohol Testing – ($35.00) Using the most accurate test in the market place, the MEDTOX Sure-Screen you can be certain of the results. 12-Step Program – The very foundation of our recovery programs is based in 12-Step programs of action as laid out in the Basic Text of Alcoholics Anonymous.
