Located northeast of the University of Texas at Arlington campus, The Salvation Army’s Family Life Center and Youth Education Town in Arlington meet the needs of a broad cross-section of the community. The center provides opportunities for worship, education, recreation, music, and community activities.
The Family Life Center provides a shelter designed to take families from being homeless to being stable and productive members of society. It is one of the few shelters in the area where families are able to live together as they strive to get back on their feet. Activities within the Family Life Center include the job skills, parenting classes, finance classes, and more.
The North Texas Youth Education Town, a legacy project from Super Bowl XLV, meets the needs of youth and families by dealing with educational, spiritual, and health issues. The program consists of an after school program, summer day camp, homework assistance, music, dance, arts, and more.

PROGRAM & SERVICES INFORMATION
Family Life Center
The Family Life Center is a residential program designed to assist homeless families in regaining self-sufficiency. We serve parents or grandparents with dependent children who are homeless at the time of program enrollment. Guests are provided with private sleeping accommodations (including linens), hot meals, showers (including towels and toiletries), case management, counseling, life-skills classes and referrals to other community resources.
Lack of adequate income prevents many families from providing Christmas gifts for their children. The Salvation Army's Christmas Assistance program depends on generous gifts and contributions from caring individuals. Applications are handed out in early September each year.
Summer Heat Relief - Cooling Stations
Extreme heat can be life-threatening. During the summer months, we provide an air-conditioned sitting area and water to keep people healthy and hydrated.
Computers provide participants the opportunity to search for jobs, increase computer skills, or complete homework assignments. This lab will also be used by various programs within the Youth Education Town to teach literacy, ESL, and to meet homework needs. Other groups and individuals will be able to use the lab during open hours.
Youth Education Town After-School Program
YET's After-School Program provides a safe place for youth to study and participate in fun, enriching activities during out-of-school time. Youth are able to enjoy various sports activities, as well as dance, theater arts, music, book clubs and health and fitness workshops. These activities, along with daily tutoring and homework, create the perfect formula for healthy, happy youth. YET's After-School is open to school-aged youth, including high school students, and operates Monday-Friday between 3:30-7:00 pm.
Summer Day Camp
We offer low-cost, summer-long day camps, which provide a safe place for parents to leave their children. Each year, financial sponsorships are needed from corporations and organizations to help underwrite equipment, supplies and field trips.
