S.E.E.D. Program

Shelter Extension for Employment and Direction

Seed time and harvest are Biblical Principles, that The Salvation Army in Decatur is implementing for a new program to serve homeless clients. The clients must be actively seeking employment and unable to meet financial requirements for shelter.

Understanding there are many steps to this principle, The Salvation Army will begin by providing overnight shelter to clients who are willing to be accountable to the Lodge Director, the Case Manager and the Commanding Officer for their attitude and actions.  Included in shelter are meals, laundry facility, bathing facility, and a warm, dry place to stay.
