The Salvation Army Hospitality House

Revised: February 21, 2017

The Salvation Army Hospitality House is one of two year-round emergency shelters in Orange County, and has been serving homeless persons at 818 East Third Street since 1964. In November 2016, the Salvation Army completed an expansion of their Third Street facility to serve up to 75 homeless men; an increase from the prior capacity of 50. While the expanded permanent emergency shelter was under construction, The Salvation Army facility at 1710 West Edinger Avenue was used as a temporary shelter and is now closed.

A Management and Operation Plan (MOP) was prepared for each location to satisfy the requirements of the City of Santa Ana Emergency Shelter ordinance. The MOPs found below describe the temporary housing services to be provided for homeless persons, and best practices to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the community.

Management and Operation Plans:

Hospitality House Expansion at 818 E. Third Street

Temporary Hospitality House at 1710 W. Edinger Avenue

An Advisory Committee will meet on a monthly basis to advise the Third Street Hospitality House Temporary Shelter in implementing the Operation and Management Plan, enhance community relations, and bring information of any strengths and concerns from the neighborhood or City about operation or program of Hospitality House.

For questions regarding the MOP or the project, please contact Melanie McCann of the City’s Planning and Building Agency at or (714) 667-2746.
