The Salvation Army Denton

The Salvation Army Denton is an Emergency Night Shelter, Food Pantry, Social Service Center, KARE Kitchen (soup kitchen), and Church. Located North East of The University of North Texas and South East of Texas Woman's University, The Salvation Army Denton addresses the needs of individuals experiencing homeless and/or food insecurity and working poor of Denton County.

To schedule a donation pick-up, please call: 817-834-6271

Our Emergency Night Shelter and KARE Kitchen are open 365-days a year regardless of rain, sleet, snow, sunshine, or holiday. The shelter opens at 4:00 p.m. and new intakes are registered on a first come-first serve basis. Our KARE Kitchen offers a free dinner to the community at 5:30 p.m.

Through our Social Service Office, our Food Pantry is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Eligible recipients come once a month to receive food items, hygiene products, and cleaning supplies.

Our Case Workers are available to meet with individuals by appointment (walk-in appointments are granted so long as space is available on the schedule) Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m until 3:30 p.m. Individuals meet with our Case Workers to discuss resources that are available to help meet the current need.

We offer opportunities for people to complete volunteer and community service hours. (Please call us for more information on how to sign-up.)

PLEASE NOTE: The Denton location does not have a Salvation Army Thrift Store. However, there is a drop-off box for small items and clothing. For information on other thrift stores in the area operated by non-profits we partner with, please call our office.
