Turning Point Center—Founded in 1999, Turning Point Center is a transitional housing program meeting the needs of young homeless mothers and their children in the heart of Northwest Washington, DC. The program is open to women between the ages of 18 and 24. In addition to a safe and secure living environment—including fully furnished living quarters during their stay—the mothers receive independent living and life skills, encouragement to complete their G.E.D and beyond, and secure meaningful employment during the course of the program. Turning Point Center provides expert case management and skilled staff members to empower young mothers to take control of their lives.

Camp Happyland—For more than 50 years, this sprawling 220-acre residential camping facility in Central Virginia has offered activities for kids including outdoor swimming, fishing, paddle boating, arts and crafts, hiking, zip-lining, archery and more. Every summer, The Salvation Army gives 400 local children, mostly from low-income families, the opportunity to spend a week at Camp Happyland, providing them the opportunity to learn while having fun and fellowship away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, DC.

Anti-Human Trafficking Program—Founded in 2017, The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command’s new Anti-Human Trafficking Program provides a 24-hour emergency response, with a residential component that includes comprehensive services designed to bring restoration to women and men who have been exploited. The program offers a 24-hour hotline and intake process, emergency transportation to the shelter, emergency beds for adult victims, a comfortable living environment in a secure and undisclosed location and specially-trained staff to work with victims and survivors.
