LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Salvation Army Southern Nevada will be moving its Family Services programs to temporary facilities at Edmond Town Center, 931 W. Owens Avenue, Suite 135, as of April 9, 2019.  The services effected by the move include the Hope Market Food Pantry, rental and utility assistance, all of which are utilized by families at risk of becoming homeless.  There should be only a two-week stoppage of these services while the move is completed.

Also affected by this relocation are the Rapid Rehousing program, which finds permanent housing for homeless, and SEEDS of Hope, a program for victims of human trafficking, both of which will have offices on The Salvation Army Social Services campus, and Supportive Services for Veterans’ Families which has already moved back to 35 W. Owens.

The city of Las Vegas, which owns the property at 1581 N. Main Street where these programs have been offered since 2005, will be using the building to house some city offices.  “The city has been very generous in allowing The Salvation Army to utilize this space for 14 years.  We understand their decision and we have a temporary solution until permanent facilities can be found,” said Major Randy Kinnamon, Clark County Coordinator for the non-profit.

“It is expected that the Family Services programs will be in a more permanent facility, also at Edmond Town Center, at 921 W. Owens, Suite 150, by the end of summer,” said Juan Salinas, Director of Social Services for The Salvation Army here.  “That space will be much larger and allow for a food pantry similar to the one we are leaving, as well as offices and conference room.”
