In response to the growing needs of the community impacted by novel coronavirus, the City of Detroit has requested the use of The Salvation Army Harbor Light’s Ellen Thompson Center, located at 3737 Humboldt in Detroit, to use as an Emergency Quarantine Center. The Salvation Army is prepared to assist and will relinquish the facility to the City of Detroit on Friday, March 13.
