Important Updates to
Sacramento-Area ARC Consolidation

At The Salvation Army, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our services to surrounding communities. Because we provide services to 30 million Americans each year, we have to look at the big picture.

As such, we have reorganized and consolidated some things here in Northern California, which affects local programs and Thrift Stores.

As we've communicated, the Sacramento Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is consolidating with Stockton's existing ARC. Because the ARC programs are supported directly by Family Thrift Store sales, it became necessary to close a few area stores.

The following closures are scheduled:

  • Auburn Family Thrift Store (510 High St, Auburn, CA): 8/9/2019
  • Woodland Family Thrift Store (438 College St, Woodland, CA): 8/16/2019
  • Grass Valley Family Thrift Store (117 Neal St, Grass Valley, CA): 8/23/2019
  • Sacramento Family Thrift Store (315 16th St, Sacramento, CA): 9/6/2019

Those looking for closeout sales will want to visit these locations soon!

And if you live in the Sacramento area, please continue shopping and donating household items to our Rancho Cordova store located at 10309 Folsom Blvd.

Local Restructuring

While the Sacramento ARC will no longer accept new men into the rehabilitation program, those who have not completed their rehabilitation by October 1st will be transferred to existing Stockton, Fresno, Bakersfield, or Oakland programs.   

The Salvation Army in Sacramento is looking into the possibility of using the men’s residence building to house other growing programs in the area, like our Workforce Development Programs which provide construction and culinary training.

As The Salvation Army continues to grow, we hope to grow smarter. While transitions like these can be difficult, we feel strongly that these changes will enable us to serve more people in more meaningful ways. In Sacramento and beyond, we endeavor to lift people up out of the cycles of poverty and addiction.
