Every year, leaders in Madison and Dane County try to help people who are homeless.

One place they can turn to find a place to stay is the Salvation Army of Dane County.

The organization helped Suzi Strazimirofski when she lost her housing.

She stayed at the Salvation Army's shelter for women on East Washington Avenue, while continuing to work full-time.

"Coming here and just meeting all the women, the workers, the case workers. I wasn't stressed about where I was going to sleep the next night, even food, they provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. I mean, it's huge when you're homeless," said Strazimirofski.

While she stayed at the shelter, others helped Strazimirofski get back on her feet.

An Uber driver she met cared for her dog and one day when she took her dog to a dog park, she met a woman who connected her with a place where she could rent a room.

The Salvation Army of Dane County also runs a shelter for families on Milwaukee Street.
