All of our shelters are open during the COVID-19 crisis, and we have expanded our operating hours at the Siena House shelter to provide a safe place during the outbreak. If you need shelter, please go to the SHELTERS page of our website for information or call 262-549-8722.
We are actively seeking help from our community during this time of crisis. We need funding to expand our bed space and pay our staff most of all, but we also need supplies to keep our guests healthy, and hot meals delivered to the shelters. If you can help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our most urgent items, other than cash donation, are:
Hand soap in any form
All cleaning supplies, but especially disinfecting wipes and sprays
Toilet paper – we have over 60 guests and are not able to order more due to shortages
Our offices are closed until further notice, but our staff is still working and reachable by email. Stay safe!
