Harbor Light System

In 1939, The Salvation Army opened the doors on its first Harbor Light center in Detroit. This has since grown into the largest drug rehabilitation in the state and is known as The Eastern Michigan Salvation Army Harbor Light System. There are three locations that offer bed and bread programs, sheltering up to 750 clients and serving 1.7 million meals each year. The Salvation Army Harbor Light System aims to end hunger and homelessness from the lives of our recovering clients. Harbor Light opens its doors every day of the year.

About 15 percent of the homeless population is comprised of "chronically homeless" Individuals.

This population is most vulnerable during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

Our doors are always open.

Each year, The Salvation Army's Eastern Michigan Division provides over 663,364 nights of lodging to those in need. Our group homes, emergency shelters, and transitional living centers provide housing, food, and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced, and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. Through our holistic approach to serving the whole person, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

Give the gift of a good night's sleep. You can help.
