Homeless Students in the Madison School District

The Madison School District reports that 1385 students were homeless for the 2016-2017 school  year. Homeless families move frequently due to a variety of issues. Often, homeless children have to change schools and frequent school transfers are not uncommon. According to the Institute of Children and Poverty, homeless children are nine times more likely to repeat a grade, four times more likely to drop out of school, and three times more likely to be placed in special education program than their housed peers

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.
