With the construction now complete, SA was able to increase its overnight capacity to 120 beds for approximately 75 men and 45 women every night.

"Salvation Army is thankful to be the 2011 NWP grant recipient," Clark County Coordinator, Major Robert Lloyd said. "Our funding is down by close to $3 million from where we were before the recession. If Salvation Army didn't receive this money from NWP, we would face losing this building."
