 Welcome To the Road Home Dane County

The Road Home Dane County is committed to developing long-term relationships with homeless families with children that can change lives.  We work with families, not only to relieve the immediate crisis of homelessness, but also to build skills, resources and relationships that set the stage for long-term success. 

Each family works closely with a professional case manager to secure housing, employment and other resources such as childcare, health/mental health care, and children’s educational and recreational programs.  Adults in shelter attend workshops taught by parenting and mental health educators.  Families who have moved from shelter into housing work with The Road Home through the Housing Stabilization program, Second Chance Apartment Project, Stoughton Second Chance, Second Chance Leasing, House-ability, Rapid Rehousing, and Housing & Hope programs to maintain the achievements they’ve already reached and to continue their steps toward a successful future.  

Every child deserves a home.

The 12th Homes for Families Fundraising Breakfast is Thursday, November 10, 2016 at the Alliant Energy Center. This year's theme is "Every Child Deserves a Home."
