The Salvation Army of fond du lac:

the home of hope for those with no address 

More than just a place to sleep.

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

Every winter, we open our doors nightly, as Fond du Lac County's ONLY warming shelter

PROVIDING SHELTER FROM WINTER'S ICY CHILL.

The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac Winter Warming 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 the 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.

    PATRICIA JOHN RECALLS  “As a staff member, I witnessed overdoses... and hugs; I cherished advice given me by a stage four terminally ill veteran, & held the hands of a tortured rape victim; I gave my words of wisdom to a father struggling with co-parenting and providing for his three small children; I listened to a gentleman who had to bury his partner of thirteen years, and whose sorrow would not allow him to stay in the home they once shared, but who found solace in our shelter; I had the immense pleasure of sharing my recovery story to help reassure a client his decision to surrender to a six month rehab facility through The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center was well -thought out. I remember how he shook, telling me he was terrified. I pretended to learn to knit just to soak up the peaceful energy from a lovely retired woman who told me how God saved her. I supported our clients, but there is no secret they supported me also.”
