Salvation Army Women's Home and Hospital

The Salvation Army Women's Home and Hospital, now The Salvation Army's Booth Brown House, is a 1912 brick Tudor Revival style building designed by Clarence H. Johnston, Sr. in Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States. The Salvation Army originally used it to provide housing and hospital care for unwed mothers and their children. In 1971 its focus changed to helping young women with behavioral or emotional issues. The facility now serves homeless and transitional youth. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 10, 1983 for its architecture and its significance in religion, humanitarianism, and women's history.

Famous quotes containing the words hospital, home, salvation, army and/or women:

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But the creative person is subject to a different, higher law than mere national law. Whoever has to create a work, whoever has to bring about a discovery or deed which will further the cause of all of humanity, no longer has his home in his native land but rather in his work.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    ... the task of youth is not only its own salvation but the salvation of those against whom it rebels, but in that case there must be something vital to rebel against and if the elderly stiffly refuse to put up a vigorous front of their own, it leaves the entire situation in a mist.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)

    An army is maintained for a thousand days all to be used on one morning.
    Chinese proverb.

    In all systems of theology the devil figures as a male person.... Yes, it is women who keep the church going.
    Don Marquis (1878–1937)
