A place to call home is a need for all.
The Salvation Army Emergency Lodge is home for many.
Everyone is at risk of becoming homeless; all it takes is one major incident and an individual may be seeking the assistance from their local homeless shelter. The Salvation Army is here to assist those individuals experiencing homelessness with a bed, three meals a day, casework, bus tokens and more.
"Just when I thought I would be living in the streets, The Salvation Army opened not only their doors but their warm hearts."
The Salvation Army Emergency Lodge is a 45-bed emergency shelter located at 710 Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Sheboygan. It is available 7 days a week, 365 days a year to assist those who have experienced a crisis leading to homelessness. This is a 30 day program with extension stays available. The homeless are no longer confined to the alcoholic or skid row derelict. The ranks of the homeless now include females, families and youth.
The Emergency Lodge provides each person with a bed, linens, clothes storage, and three meals each day. During their stay, clients are also provided with intensive case management and given the opportunity to set realistic goals and work toward them. This action plan will ultimately result in permanent and affordable housing. Case Managers meet weekly with clients to determine an action plan and work towards self-sufficiency.
Intake of new residents is available 7 days a week from 4:30pm - 6:45pm.
