The Salvation Army Center for Women and Children provides emergency housing for women and children who are without a home. Women living in the shelter receive two meals a day, a bed for each family member, child care, case management, clothing and transportation assistance, parenting classes and job preparation skills. We try to address immediate needs as well as underlying issues that brought the women to our shelter. The overall goal of the CWC is to end the homelessness of each woman, helping them get back on their feet and into permanent housing.
The CWC is the only shelter in Mobile and Baldwin Counties that allows the children to stay with their parent. Its a brand-new facility, that was rebuilt in 2010 after Hurricane Katrina flooding ruined the previous building.
