Groups and Businesses

Looking for ways your business or group can support our work? Here are some ideas to get you started.

For over twenty years, the Dane County business and civic communities have been tremendous supporters of our efforts to combat family homelessness. If you’re looking to get involved, please consider the opportunities below:

SPONSOR A FAMILY FOR THE 2022 HOLIDAY SEASON

This year The Road Home will again be sponsoring families to support their holiday giving, and our congregation partners typically play a leading role in this effort. For the 2022 holiday season, each adult and child in our housing programs will receive a $75 gift card to a location of their choosing. Our Community Engagement Manager can work with your congregation to set a sponsorship budget and provide you with information about your sponsored families and their gift card preferences. For more information about the program and to register your sponsorship commitment, please view our online form. Gift cards must be delivered to The Road Home office at 890 W Wingra Drive by mid-December, so there’s still plenty of time to get signed up!

INQUIRE ABOUT GROUP VOLUNTEER PROJECTS

Like many other social service agencies in our community, The Road Home is slowly building out our volunteer programming following the long COVID-induced pause. While in-person opportunities are currently limited, we hope to offer a more robust calendar of volunteer activities in the months ahead as folks feel more and more comfortable gathering together in shared spaces. If you’re interested in a group volunteer project, please reach out to see what might be available!

CONDUCT A WISH LIST DONATION DRIVE

Families enrolled in our housing programs typically have very limited budgets, so your congregation can make an immediate impact in their lives by providing high-need items like cleaning products, toilet paper, diapers, and other basic household necessities.

EDUCATION AND AWARENESS

At The Road Home, we appreciate any opportunity to spread awareness about family homelessness in our community. A representative from our agency would be happy to set up a time to meet with your team to discuss our work and Dane County homelessness more broadly.

FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Join together with the online community and help share stories and events happening at The Road Home. This is a simple and effective way to show your support for our mission of ending family homelessness. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.
