The Salvation Army operates Fond du Lac County's only warming shelter November 1 through March 31.

To clients, the warming shelter is more than just a place to sleep.

"You gave me a warm meal, a shower with soap and shampoo, a tooth brush with toothpaste, the chance to wash clothes and even get clean underwear and socks. I slept on clean sheets, safe from harm, without worry. You gave me the chance to feel human again." - A Warming Shelter Client

Shelter Summary

The shelter is open nightly from 6 PM - 8 AM starting November 1 through March 31. Shelter clients receive supper, the opportunity to shower, do laundry and fellowship in the evening; in the morning, there's breakfast and opportunity to grab a snack before leaving. The sleeping quarters separate men from ladies. Trained staff provides case management services to assist clients in attaining higher levels of sufficiency and Corp Officers minister to client spiritual needs. Volunteers support staff and visit with clients.

Each season, over 100 different homeless adults are sheltered for 151 nights, fed over 2000 meals, and more than 1000 loads of laundry keep them clean. Community support makes all this possible. Donations of supplies, financial support, volunteer staffing help and meals ensure the warming shelter continues.
