The Shelter Booth works along side The Angel Tree Booth at the Wausau Center Mall. The Shelter Booth is set up to assist with keeping The Salvation Army's Homeless Shelter open and running. The Shelter Booth consists of small tags which a sponsor takes. The sponsor can choose as many nights as they would like, at $15.00 a night, to ensure that a homeless person has a place to stay and food to eat. The sponsor can also have the donation put in someone elses name. The $15.00 donation will give a homeless person one nights stay, a shower, laundry services and three meals.
The Homeless Shelter is more than just temporary housing, The Salvation Army's Homeless Shelter also provides basic living skills training, "Barriers to Change" classes and case management. The shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Residents have to work toward self-reliance in this program.
