About the Project

The Shield is a WHEDA-funded transitional housing development that includes both mixed-income and affordable housing. The Shield will be located on the Salvation Army of Dane County’s campus, next to the new Emergency Shelter.

A wide array of supportive services & amenities will be offered to assist residents, allowing them to stabilize their housing situations, increase their independence, & gain the tools/support that will allow them to break the cycle of homelessness or domestic violence.

“It has been a great experience working with JLA. They are very thorough, professional, and well spoken. They have been a huge asset on getting approvals thru the City process and we look forward to working with them more.”
