Western Dairyland operates seven homeless shelters in Buffalo, Eau Claire, Jackson and Trempealeau counties for families with children.
Our shelters are single-family units which may be occupied for up to 30 days. Each shelter is a completely furnished apartment with bedding, furniture, cooking utensils and cleaning supplies donated by the community. Our shelters are located in safe locations, and every effort is made to maintain the privacy of the families staying there. Family members are referred to other Western Dairyland resources and community organizations for additional help.
Our first priority is to provide a safe place to stay for homeless families with children. During their stay, we do everything we can to locate permanent housing and help them on their way to self-sufficiency.
