Loin the Circle of Hope

Thanks to the generous donations from throughout Licking County, we’ve completed construction of our new 60-bed Emergency Homeless Shelter and made significant renovations to our community center.

At a glance


  •  A new Shelter was constructed, increasing capacity from 18 to 60 beds     
  •  Our food pantry was upgraded to a Choice Pantry   
  •  The site of the previous shelter was transformed into a Learning Center


Check out photos (link to photos) of the renovation!

Now that the construction is finished:

  •     More homeless families can have a place to call home
  •     More hungry people can have food
  •     More at-risk children can have a safe place to go after school
  •     More people can have HOPE

But The Salvation Army can’t do it alone. Its work is made possible because local businesses, donors, volunteers, churches, nonprofit organizations and community members work together to help those in need in Licking County.

Join us as we dedicate the renovated facility!
