The mission of The Salvation Army is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human need in His name without discrimination.

The Salvation Army is committed to serving homeless individuals/families in Milwaukee through programs and services ranging from prevention to permanent housing.

EMERGENCY LODGE

Since 1979, the 120 bed Emergency Lodge has provided emergency shelter to homeless individuals and families. Services are offered in a 24 hour setting that requires residents to be drug and alcohol free. Residents stay in semi-private rooms, receive three nutritious meals a day and have laundry facilities available. 41% of homeless individuals in Milwaukee suffer from a mental illness. Our social work staff has mental health expertise, education, and degrees. Each resident is assigned a primary social worker to develop an individualized plan for self-sufficiency. Part of each plan requires residents to establish income, either through employment or benefits, and to save 80% of their income in preparation for their move to housing in the community. More than 80% of residents successfully move from shelter to safe affordable housing each year.
