About the Salvation Army Community Services in Saskatoon

Started in 1925, The Saskatoon Salvation Army Community Services is now a men's shelter, women's shelter, food provider, and a safe space to drop-in for adults in the downtown core of Saskatoon.

The Salvation Army Men's HostelIt is a continuation of the services that the Salvation Army started in Saskatoon in 1905. In 1926 the Salvation Army opened what was then known as the "Relief Office" at 335 Avenue C South. By 1932 it was known as the The Salvation Army Men's Hostel and Industrial Store where by 1943, had room for 40 men. In 1962 the Centre had moved next door to it's current location at 339 Avenue C South. Over the next several decades a chapel, half-way house, rehab unit, and more property was added until the Centre took the form it is today.

We are a place where all people can find safety, community, belonging, dignity, respect, recovery, reconciliation, friendship, and God.

Our residential services are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year where and we house up to 55 men a day. Our office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays where we provide a range of services ranging from life skills classes, free clothing, and budget management. Most days we serve approximately 300 meals per day in addition to the breakfast programs we have for high school students.

Salvation Army Community Centre in 2005Our corrections services provides a variety of services that serve Saskatoon including a John School, a halfway house, housing for men on probation and electronic monitoring.

To help our clients transition back into the community, we provide a variety of chapel services and Bible studies. If the men need someone to talk to, every evening we have a chaplain in the building.

You can connect to us online via e-mail, follow us on twitter, see our photos on Flickr, or check our videos produced from the Centre at YouTube.
