Salvation Army's Center of Hope in High Point Still Closed Due to Flood Damage

Families who were staying there have been placed at the Boys & Girls Club.

HIGH POINT, N.C. — The Salvation Army's Center of Hope in High Point is still closed and there's no timeline for when the shelter could reopen. 

The building closed after it flooded last week due to heavy rain. The center's director says 4-8 inches of water got into the building, and they had to take up all the floors to prevent damage. 

34 men, women, and children were staying at the shelter at the time of the flood.

Those people are either now at the Boys & Girls Club, or in a hotel.

Red Cross donated cots and linens, but they also need pillows, bottled water, and trash bags. 

The Salvation Army is also in need of cleaning supplies once they are able to get back into their building. 

The United Way has also stepped in to help families that were evacuated from the shelter.
