MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Salvation Army officials in Memphis hope a new $33 million suburban rehabilitation center will help more
individuals in need of assistance.

The Commercial Appeal reports the Salvation Army will close its downtown facilities because of the newly opened Adult
Rehabilitation Center. The nonprofit has operated downtown for 50 years.

Men live at the center while they work their way through a free, six-week education and work program that focuses on work
discipline, job training and spiritual healing.

The organization's downtown facility has 80 beds, while the new center has 125. It sits on 20 acres, while the current site has
less than one acre.
