 The RC opened in February of 2020 and was built with privately raised Salvation Army Capital Campaign dollars on land donated by Dick and Sara Rathgeber. The Rathgeber Center is comprised of two separate "phases." Phase I serves as a case-managed emergency shelter with 120 beds in 42 private rooms; the average family stay is 4-6 months. Phase II has 92 beds in 23 extended-stay suites where families with higher barriers can stay, find success, and eventually move into permanent housing.
