“With the unseasonably cold temperatures this week we need to keep the shelter open,” County Executive Stenger said. “St. Louis County and The Salvation Army are providing professional services to our most vulnerable residents this winter and we will continue to operate as long as those services are needed.”

Salvation Army staff provides meals, laundry facilities and case management services to help those in need find housing.
“The Salvation Army Midland Division knows the immediate need for families and individuals to get out of the dangerously cold temperatures,” said Lt. Colonel Dan Jennings, The Salvation Army Midland Divisional Commander. “We appreciate St. Louis County partnering with The Salvation Army to assist our community.”
