Access to Shelter

Dakota County and Salvation Army Emergency Hotel Program

Dakota County and The Salvation Army have started an emergency hotel program for homeless single and partnered adults (not households with children) who are unable to access other emergency shelter due to health and safety concerns or lack of shelter space.

Qualifying individuals will receive hotel assistance and case management support from Salvation Army on an ongoing weekly basis while in the hotel program during cold weather months or until other shelter or housing is found.
