"When you think you have everything, you never really think about being in a position to have nothing. You don’t think about being homeless with three children, and raising them by yourself.” —Chinae
You can help The Road Home stop the cycle of family homelessness. Last year, we worked with 162 families, including 377 children to relieve the immediate crisis of homelessness. But there is always a waiting list; last year our community had to turn away over 300 families from shelter.

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.
