Salvation Army of Spokane hopes to help more families with transitional housing program

SPOKANE, Wash. — If you’re a family struggling to make ends meet, the Salvation Army of Spokane may be able to help you.

There are eight three-bedroom units available now in their Stepping Stones Apartment Complex.

You must be making 30-50% below the median income in Spokane County, which is about $71,100.

Families must have 3-6 members, including at least one person age 17 and under.

They may reside in this program for up to 24 months while they work toward finding affordable housing by increasing their income, paying off debt and addressing issues that led to homelessness.

Residents can expect weekly visits by a case manager and a variety of services to help them.

To see if you qualify, pick up a Housing Questionnaire at The Salvation Army’s Family Resource Center at 204 E. Indiana Ave., or Administration Building  at 222 E. Indiana Ave., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
