Social Services - Red Shield Lodge Emergency Shelter
The Salvation Army's Red Shield Lodge is the only emergency shelter in Hillsborough County that is open 365 days a year. Sober homeless adult men and women who have no place to go can stay in the 125-bed Lodge for up to 5 nights for free. After 5 nights, there is a charge of $10 per night. Qualifying clients, including homeless veterans, can apply to have their stay underwritten.
The Red Shield Lodge provides each person with a bed, linens, a locker, and three meals each day. Support and referral services are available to those who wish to use them. Homeless men and women committed to regaining their independence and living self-sufficiently can move from the emergency shelter into one of our Transitional Living Programs.
The Red Shield Lodge is located at 1514 N. Florida Avenue, Tampa, FL 33602.
Check-In is at 4 p.m. daily.
