Waukesha Overflow Shelter

1210 Sentry Drive, Waukesha WI 53186

Shelter beds fill up quickly, especially during the winter months. HAC has been tasked with coordinating and operating a seasonal overflow shelter to help our community partners serve our most vulnerable. 

The Waukesha Overflow Shelter serves guests with 30-40 additional shelter beds for single women, single men,  and families with children who are unable to get into other community shelters due to shelter capacity and/or family composition. 

The Housing Action Coalition is pleased to partner with Community Advocates, who will again operate the shelter by providing guests with a safe and secure place to stay this winter season. 

For anyone currently experiencing homelessness or are in need of emergency shelter, please contact one of the following agencies in the Waukesha community to find out more information about the Waukesha Overflow Shelter and its referral process.
