The Road Home

Groups and Businesses

Looking for ways your business or other group can volunteer? We're excited to have your help! Here are some ideas to get you started.

Volunteers have always been an important part of who we are and what we do at The Road Home. If you’re looking for ways your business or other group can make a difference in our community, we’ve got some ideas for you!

First Steps

Some great first steps to getting your group involved are:

Attend a tour or have us bring our tour to you. During our Homes for Families tours, you can learn about family homelessness in our area and how The Road Home is working to help families transform their lives. You can see the dates for these regularly scheduled events here. We also take The Road Home tour “on the road.” We’d love to come to your business or group and share this information. Call us at 608-294-7998 to schedule a tour.

Learn about our volunteer opportunities. Take a few minutes to learn about our volunteer opportunities here. Some of these, such as preparing a meal, work well for small groups. For more information, contact our Community Engagement Manager by email at to learn more.

Other Group Opportunities

Still need more ideas for your group after looking on our volunteer opportunity page? Here are a few projects that will work even for larger groups:

Wish List Drives. Groups of any size can get involved with us is by holding wish list drives. Families and children often arrive in our supportive housing programs without even the basic necessities. Wish list items such as soap, diapers and gas cards, help them transition from homelessness to housing. Learn more about what we need and how you can help here.

Seasonal Support. During certain times of the year, your group could also get involved by donating school supplies or sponsoring a family during the holidays.

One-Day Groups Projects. On occasion, we have other group volunteer opportunities available such as painting or cleaning a new housing unit. Contact our Community Engagement Manager by email at to learn more.

Congregational Team Partners

The Road Home has partnered with congregations for many years, first through our Interfaith Hospitality Shelter program and now through our Congregation Team model. Through this arrangement, congregations help provide people to fill specific volunteer needs for one month at a time. To learn more about how we work with congregation, read here.
