Who's Life Will You Transform?


Adult Rehabilitation

For over 100 years The Salvation Army has been providing assistance to people with a variety of social and spiritual afflictions through its Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARC) located across the United States. The Adult Rehabilitation Center ministry began in 1881 when William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, opened shelters for homeless people on the streets of England and this initiative quickly spread to the United States. Persons who have sought our ministry, nurture and healing have come with issues of substance misuse, legal problems, relational conflicts, homelessness, unemployment, and most importantly, a need for spiritual awakening and restoration.

The Mission

The Tampa Florida Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center provides an in-residence rehabilitation program with a focus on basic necessities. Each beneficiary (program participant) is provided with a clean and healthy living environment, good food, work therapy, leisure time activities, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction, and resources to assist each person to develop life skills and a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ.

We can help! 

We believe that no one is a lost cause. We support adults in their efforts to improve their lives by helping them get back on their feet again. With work support opportunities, group counseling, and supportive mentors, we believe that individuals can be changed. For Good 

If you or a loved one needs help, please call 1-800-SA-TRUCK, press 0 for an operator and ask to speak with the ARC intake coordinator. We will do our best to provide the Hope you are seeking.
