Salvation Army taking action to end San Diego homeless crisis

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Salvation Army has prevention processes to try to keep people in their homes and off the streets.

Divisional Secretary of the San Diego Salvation Army, Lt. Col. Lescano talked about how the Salvation Army is helping the homeless.

One of their projects is the Red Shield Community Center which is set to open this October. The 29,540-square foot facility will include a Choice Food Pantry and a Social Services Center to help serve the needs of the East County community. This program will give clients an opportunity to select items from pantry shelves, rather than being given a pre-packaged bag of food.
