Warm Welcome

Day by Day Warming Shelter seeks to provide temporary emergency shelter for adult men and women who have no other sheltering options in Oshkosh, WI. All services and assistance are offered in the context of the furtherance of human dignity with the primary goal of harm reduction during the coldest weather months of the year.

Day by Day Warming Shelter Inc. just finished its third season. We are an emergency warming shelter offering shelter to those that have no other sheltering options (mid-October to mid-April). We offer shelter from the winter elements, safety, warmth and two meals a day to those most in need. Laundry & shower facilities are on site as well as a variety of resources. These include such things as weekly medical assessment, AA meetings, monthly haircuts, computer & literacy support as needed and spiritual enrichment. Community Outreach days are monthly, bringing in experts from varied agencies in the community to help give a hand up, instead of a hand-out, to our guests.

There are many ways you can help! Go to our Donate and Wish List Pages to find out how you can be of help. Go to our Volunteer Page and Meal Page to get more information on how to make a difference at Day by Day.

Volunteer Orientation on December 6th at 10 am and 1pm. No need to sign up just come down. Held at the shelter (449 High Ave) and is about an hour long. This is mandatory for all volunteers and will be the last Orientation for the season.

Mission Statement

Day by Day Warming Shelter will provide safe night to night temporary shelter, a warm evening meal, and a breakfast for adults who have no other sheltering options. Day by Day will also provide guidance for guests to promote self-sufficiency and will advocate for collaborative, locally driven solutions to reduce homelessness.


As a community we have a social responsibility to care for each other by assuring that everyone has access to resources that help them meet their basic need for shelter.

Therefore, the Day by Day warming shelter:

  • -Addresses the need for temporary emergency night-time shelter for adults who have no other place to stay

  • -Identifies and evaluates broader needs for our guests

  • -Provides access to other community resources that foster independence

  • -Advocates in partnership with others in the community for the needs of the homeless

Who will be served?

All guests, men and women, must be over the age of 18, and must be without housing resources. Potential guests must be willing and capable of participating in the intake process and sharing their demographics.
