Warming Shelter A Place For The Homeless During The Cold

With frigid weather continuing the Fond du Lac Salvation Army’s warming shelter is a place the homeless can stay overnight to get out of the cold. Social Services Director Ron Jacobson says during the recent bitterly cold temperatures they have served close to 30 people a night although the shelter can provide beds for 40. The warming shelter operates from November 1st through March 31st. It opens at 6 p.m. each night with a dinner served at 6:30 p.m. Those staying the night at the shelter are out before eight the next morning. This is the second year the Salvation Army has provided the shelter. Previously the Solutions Center had operated one.
