The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada breaks ground on a $325,000 emergency shelter rehabilitation Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012, 1 p.m. at The Lied Social Service Campus, 35 W. Owens Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV. This project will save a 12, 500 square-foot building which serves as homeless emergency shelter and a medical clinic.

It will also make room for 20 more beds so the shelter can provide 7,300 additional bed nights annually. The Salvation Army currently has 106 shelter beds.
