​​​​Salvation Army shelter renderingAUSTIN – Turning real estate into real community benefits is the backbone of two projects sponsored by the Salvation Army Austin Area Command.

One is the Rathgeber Center for Women and Children: A Salvation Army Shelter on Tannenhill Rd. near East Martin Luther King Blvd. and US Hwy. 183. 

The other project is the Austin Citadel Corps Community Center and Area Command facility at 4700 Manor Rd. on the eastern edge of the Mueller master-planned community.

Salvation army community centerThe 52,800-sf shelter will be delivered in two phases. The first phase, projected to open May 2018, will include 40 bedrooms. 

The second phase, which should wrap up October 2018, will add 23 bedrooms. When completed, the facility will support a capacity of 213 people.

The community center and command headquarters will serve several functions—community outreach, a base for administrative functions, a chapel for worship services, a gymnasium for various programs, including exercise, and meeting rooms.

The 17,000-sf building is expected to be finished May 2018.

Costs will be covered by the Salvation Army’s first local capital campaign in 27 years, which was a stellar success.

“We raised a record-breaking $19.2 million,” said Jan Gunter, deputy development director for the local nonprofit.​
