It doesn’t matter what the weather is outside, when you need a roof over your head, suddenly getting inside takes precedence over everything else. Because, let’s be honest, KELOLAND has more wind, snow, rain and heat than most places.

Madeline Shields is the executive director of Bishop Dudley Hospitality House in Sioux Falls.

She is part of the effort to make sure there are open doors and open arms available to greet people experiencing homelessness in our community.
