Furnace problems and a lack of space have driven the Salvation Army in Augusta out of its home on Pearl Street.
But an Augusta business has stepped up to provide them with temporary housing.
Thanks to W.S. Development associates, the Salvation Army is now located at 17 Marketplace Drive in Augusta.
The new spot will serve as the organization’s Christmas center as well as provide social service needs such as food, clothing and utilities.
“But right now we are functioning with just a phone. So sometimes people have to wait a little longer to get us because there’s only one line such as that. But so far it’s not been a really big issue,” said Lt. Erin Smullen of the Salvation Army.
They expect to be in their temporary home for the next few months.
