Salvation Army to Consolidate Rehab Services

Hartford Homestead Avenue ARC to Serve all of CT

HARTFORD – The Salvation Army announced it will consolidate its current Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs) in New Haven, Bridgeport, and Hartford into one program, which will be based at its Homestead Avenue location in Hartford.

The Salvation Army monitors needs, as well as costs, on a regular basis and has determined it can provide the most benefit to Connecticut residents by consolidating its three similar programs into one. "The Salvation Army takes its 'Doing the Most Good' promise seriously and strives to use resources entrusted to us as efficiently as possible. This consolidation will do just that," remarked Captain Leo Lloyd, Administrator for Hartford's ARC.

The Hartford ARC will now offer counseling and education, work therapy, spiritual development, lodging, and meals to over 100 men who have lost everything due to life issues, including alcohol and drugs. Every ARC is funded chiefly through in-kind donations of clothing, furniture, and other household items that are sorted and recycled or sold at The Salvation Army’s Family (Thrift) Stores.

Major David Champlin, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army in Southern New England, said, "Although there will be a period of transition, I hope that we will be able serve even more individuals after the restructuring is complete. The move with our rehabilitation program will be beneficial in the long run, while our regular social service programs will continue to be run out of our existing Corps and Community Centers – in New Haven at 450 George Street, in Bridgeport at 30 Elm Street, and in Hartford out of several locations."
