The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center and the Women's Residence helped 1649 men and 148 women during the year. Treating the whole person towards recovery from drug and alcohol addiction - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components are part of the process. The ARC rehabilitation program is the only one with a work therapy component. The Army's rehabilitation success rate is one of the highest among all recovery programs. The program has no cost to the beneficiaries because of generous support from community leaders, donors and donated items sold in the 9 Thrift Stores located throughout Orange County.

where your purchases always help us help others.
In a very real sense, The Salvation Army Family Stores are at the heart of the Adult Rehabilitation Center philosophy. These simple community stores serve several distinct purposes:
Our Family Stores provide quality clothing, furniture and other goods to the community at bargain prices.
The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabiliation Centers are 100% funded from the proceeds of our Family Stores, allowing them to be self-sustaining.
A major part of the men's and women's involvement in their own rehabilitation is Work Therapy. Some of this is done in the Family Stores allowing them to regain self-esteem and learn valuable vocational skills as well.

Curriculum & Teaching:
A theme-based approach using developmentally appropriate Learning Centers, we explore new concepts through hands-on experiences such as language, dramatic play, science & discovery, music, & creative art.
PreK is by definition a preparatory class for Kindergarten. Using school district kindergarten-readiness guidelines, teachers plan activities to build skills, knowledge, & a love of learning in each child.
Preschool classes focus primarily on basic skills such as colors, shapes, counting, building vocabulary, social skills, & following directions.
All classes utilize a balance of teacher-directed & child-initiated activities to help children grow socially & academically.
Through daily Bible stories, twice weekly Chapel, & teacher example, CCP helps develop sound moral character & build a strong foundation of values such as love, honesty, kindness & respect. Above all, we want children to know the love of Jesus!
Our caring & qualified staff of early childhood professionals is dedicated to developing each child to their full potential through fun & challenging learning experiences, nurturing & encouraging each one.
Most teachers have completed, or are currently enrolled in, a Bachelor’s Degree program with an emphasis in child development. All teachers are trained in Pediatric CPR & First Aid, & attend educational workshops to continue professional development.

The Salvation Army’s emergency shelter is aptly named The Hospitality House. It is located in the city of Santa Ana and is a place where spiritual and physical comfort is given 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year.
The Hospitality House provides homeless single adult males with a clean, safe place to stay. Food, clothing, and counseling services are provided free of charge to those that are in need, as well as work search and integrated employment programs.
The Hospitality House first opened its doors in 1964, providing emergency shelter and resources to people in need. Since that time, it has been a beacon of hope to thousands of individuals, networking with community agencies and like-minded organizations to meet the needs of an ever increasing homeless population.
According to the Orange County Biannual Point-in-Time Survey (2015), on a given night in January of 2015, an estimated 4,452 people were experiencing homelessness throughout Orange County. Of that number, 2,251 were accounted for in emergency shelters and 2,201 remained unsheltered. The need is great and The Salvation Army continues to march forward in the fight against homelessness.
As part of our commitment, construction is well underway with a significant renovation of the Hospitality House. We are looking forward to the completion of this project that will increase our housing capacity and the services we provide. The “new” Hospitality House is expected to open in the fall of 2016 and will have the capability to house 75 men, as well as having ample space for training, counseling, and integrated employment programs.

Human Trafficking is a modern form of slavery that often begins as a promised job that becomes forced labor under threats against the person or their family; or debt servitude. It is the fastest growing criminal activity in the world. And it happens everywhere -- even in Orange County.

In 2012, NETS-OC served 48 clients, 30 labor trafficking and 18 sex trafficking. NETS-OC is increasing capacity to provide both emergency and long term supportive housing for foreign and domestic survivors through The Salvation Army's County Homeless Services department. For instance, in 2013 TSA opened an apartment designed for trauma informed care and assessment for up to 5 victims as part of its emergency response with funding from TL Williams.
NETS-OC staff provides technical assistance and training to partners within The Salvation Army and local community partners who want to integrate human trafficking survivors into their social service programs. The Program Director is part of the OCHTTF law enforcement training team, which trains law enforcement throughout the state of California on how to work with victims of human trafficking and also trains local churches through the Hands that Heal curriculum that TSA helped create.
NETS-OC is primarily funded by an Office of Victims of Crime (OVC) with additional funding from private foundations, sub-grants through the task force, and general support through the TSA Orange County Coordination.
NETS-OC staff consists of a Program Director (Sherri Harris), Case Manager, 1-3 MSW interns and volunteer interpreters and life skills mentors.
Future goals are to provide responsive services to both foreign and American victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. NETS-OC is looking at ways to increase its capacity to fill the unmet needs in Orange County’s human trafficking service delivery system.

“They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.”
Isaiah 61:4 (NIV)
OC 614 is a group of individuals who are ministering the Gospel in an urban setting. We aim to train and deploy leaders within the community to reach and effectively resource marginalized individuals. Our vision is to see all marginalized psychologically sound, socially secure and spiritually thriving.
As part of the Salvation Army we have a collaborative network that helps those coming off the streets. Our network includes: transitional housing, adult rehabilitation centers, emergency shelters, homeless shelters, churches, family services, and an anti trafficking department. We also work with homeless providers and churches outside of the Salvation Army.
Throughout the week OC 614 runs various programs that provide meals, hot showers, clothing and counseling. All of these programs exist to build relationships in order to create pathways out of adverse situations. Below is a list of the programs that OC 614 runs:
During the week OC 614 visits individuals at their urban campsites getting to know each person’s context and given needs. Through these points of contact we build trusting relationships from which we can hopefully transition people into specific solutions.
The goal for OC 614 outreach is to be a caring presence on the streets. We engage homeless individuals where they are and educate them about existing resources. Through our outreach efforts we have been able to provide referrals, resources and often transition people into various programs.
All our outreach workers have been trained in engagement, active listening and have a vast knowledge of community resources. If you enjoy spending time outdoors and building relationships, volunteering for OC 614 outreach might be for you. We are always looking for potential leaders to help us reach those in need.
