Welcome To The Salvation Army of Brown CountyVisit The Salvation Army Thrift Store

The Salvation Army Transitional Housing program is a true example of community collaboration in meeting human needs. The Salvation Army works with the Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH), an interfaith group which purchases and maintains several houses in the area. They provide 20 fully furnished apartments for family transitional housing in eleven buildings, known as the Isaiah, Luke, Ruth, James, Matthew, Martha, Mary of Nazareth, St. Thomas, Barnabas, St Paul and Jubilee homes. Cleaning and upkeep are provided by members of EPH, while The Salvation Army provides intense and holistic case management.

Our purpose is to assure safe and supportive housing, while increasing opportunities for homeless families to achieve goals that empower them to become self-sufficient and enable them to secure permanent housing.

Transitional Housing Guidelines:
The following are the eligibility guidelines to be used in screening potential clients prior to making a referral to our program. Each client will be evaluated on a case by case basis. The following are guidelines, not restrictions. We evaluate each case individually as they are referred into our program.
  • To be placed on our waiting list, a referral form must be filled out by a Social worker/Caseworker/advocate - that the family has been working with.
  • The Salvation Army will not be able to assist anyone that has been found non-compliant with other shelters.
  • Intakes are between 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. All prospective residents must complete an intake assessment and be agreeable to all the terms of our housing contract before admission.
  • Applicants will be assessed on intake based on prior criminal history.
  • Housing units are for families or single parent(s) with children. Parents/Guardians must have LEGAL custody and documented 50/50 placement of the children residing with them.
  • If a client has lived outside of Wisconsin, the client must submit a criminal background check from any state in which they had prior residency. (Please see us for instructions to obtain this document.)
  • Applicants must be employed or actively seeking employement. If the adults are not working at admission, participation in W2 activities will be apart of their individualized case plan.
