Description: The Salvation Army offers our community's only single women's shelter. Single Women's shelter provides temporary nighttime only shelter to single homeless women (age 18 or older). The facility may accommodate up to 30 women per night. Cold weather exceptions apply (please see below). An individual's stay is limited to 30 nights, but extensions up to 60 nights may be granted to women working with a case manager to secure housing. In addition to shelter and case management, women are provided meals, shower/laundry facilities and skill-building workshops.

Women in need may arrive at The Salvation Army at 5:00 pm. If need exceeds capacity, a lottery system will be activated. All women will be issued a ticket with a number; and corresponding numbered tickets will be drawn from a hat. Ladies whose number is chosen will be guaranteed a bed for the evening.

On nights of extreme weather conditions or cold (i.e. 20 degrees or colder), all single women in need are welcome to use shelter despite usual capacity or shelter night limits. Space may be crowded, but The Salvation Army of Dane County will not deny shelter to any single woman in need. Please note: Behavioral issues and rule violations may result in suspension of shelter access even on cold weather nights.
