Harold J. Rust Transitional Center

The Salvation Army's work in Pekin includes the Harold J. Rust Transitional Center, a shelter for families, single men, and women working towards independence. Each night we provide shelter to an average of 30 individuals.

This facility allows us to provide much needed shelter, meals and case management services designed to help the adult identify and work on the underlying causes of their homelessness.

The Harold J. Rust Transitional Center is located at 235 Derby Street in Pekin. If you would like more information, please call (309) 478-7878.
