The Salvation Army Emergency Lodge
For over a century, The Salvation Army has provided shelter for the homeless. 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 Army continues to expand its resources to address this growing need.
The Salvation Army Emergency Lodge is a 45 bed emergency shelter. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist members of Sheboygan County who are homeless. This is a 30 day program with extension stays available. The shelter is located at 710 Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Sheboygan.
The Emergency Lodge provides each person with a bed, linens, clothes storage, and three meals each day. Support and referral services are available to those who wish to use them.
During their stay, clients are 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 action plan progress.

Management Information System
This Agency receives funding from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and/or the State of Wisconsin Department of Commerce to provide services for homeless and near homeless individuals and their families. A requirement of this funding is that this agency participates in the Wisconsin Homeless Management Information System. This system collects basic information about clients receiving services from this agency. This requirement was enacted in order to get a more accurate count of individuals and families who are homeless and to identify the need for different services.
We only collect and share only the information that we consider to be appropriate. The collection and use of all personal information is guided by strict standards of confidentiality. A copy of our Privacy Notice describing our privacy practice is available to all consumers upon request.
Your information will be shared with other area agencies that participate in the network unless you request that your information remain confidential and be only available to case workers and intake workers within this agency.
