The Salvation Army


The Salvation Army of Dane County currently operates in the former St. Patrick’s Catholic School. Over the years, they have outgrown the makeshift space and are partnering with JLA to plan and design a new homeless shelter with transitional rooms as well as affordable housing apartments. We worked collaboratively with their stakeholders and the greater community to identify the current needs of the facility and design a facility that is more efficient and able to serve the area for decades to come.
