The Road Home

Every child
deserves a home.

1999-2019: Twenty Years of Working Together to Ensure Every Child Has a Home
This spring marks 20 years since The Road Home Dane County, then known as Interfaith Hospitality Network of the Madison Area, first opened our doors. In those 20 years, we’ve gone from serving 29 families our first year to serving 175 families including over 400 children last year. Thank you for joining our efforts throughout these years.

The Road Home Dane County is committed to ending the issue of family homelessness in our community. We do this by developing long-term relationships with homeless families with children that 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. To accomplish our mission, we rely on the help and support of individuals, congregations and businesses throughout Dane County. We believe that for the greater good of our city and for human kind, we can and should join together to make a difference because every child deserves a home.
