The Salvation Army of Greenville unveiled plans to revitalize its campus at 501 Rutherford St. The $16 million redesign will move all services — currently spread between five buildings — under one roof by adding corridors for connectivity.

Changes to the 45,000-sqft social services campus include:

  • Increasing the total number of beds from 93 to 143
  • Creating new transitional housing
  • Offering family units to keep couples + parents with children together
  • Expanding the dining hall and making it less “institutional”
  • Enhancing security

The chapel on the campus will remain, but will undergo improvements to complement the other updates.
The organization started a capital campaign to support the improvements. Learn more about how to support the project.
