Santa Fe Springs Transitional Living Center To Take In Homeless Women And Children

SEPT. 15 – Pinhero Construction recently finished production for the Santa fe Springs Transitional Living Center for The Salvation Army, slated to open September 14. The new space will serve as a refuge for homeless women and children, suffering from domestic and/or drug abuse. 

Construction for the shelter took place during the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. Pinhero navigated the evolving change in atmosphere by segregating work spaces, sanitizing all areas frequently, alternating trades, and maintaining strict PPE requirements to keep the site safe.

Longtime client of Pinhero, The Salvation Army is widely known for their stores located across the U.S. Pinhero has completed five total projects for the organization, with an upcoming remodel for The Salvation Army Tabernacle Corps in Pasadena set to begin this year. 

The international charitable organization reports 1.7 million memberships, serving 130 countries worldwide. Programs include disaster relief, LGBTQ support, homeless shelters, food pantries, alcohol and drug rehab, veteran services, job training, and after-school programs. 

Located on 12000 Washington Blvd, Whittier 90606, the shelter accepts donations for hygiene products and toiletries, diaper and children’s clothing, school and office supplies, as well as monetary donations of any size. Aside from transitional living, the shelter will off counseling, life skills classes, parenting classes, case management, and housing placement assistance. 

With more than 56 Salvation Army service agencies located throughout Southern California, their mission aims “to preach the values of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.”
