The Road Home

Volunteer Opportunities

The Road Home Dane County was founded in 1999 as Interfaith Hospitality Network, a group of congregations providing overflow shelter to families without housing. We are thankful for the dedicated volunteers who have donated their time, care and resources to our organization for throughout the years to support local families moving from homelessness to housing. 

We currently have limited volunteer opportunities with our biggest need being volunteer-led donations drives. The Road Home is currently recruiting congregations, individuals and businesses to hold Wish List Drives that directly support the families with children we serve. Did you know that 1 in 3 families across the US struggle with diaper insecruity? And paper products including toilet paper, paper towels and diapers are not available through food share programs. Help make a difference in Dane County by holding an in-person or virtual drive. 

To set up a drive, please contact our Grants & Partnership Manager, Angela Smith, at

If your business or community group would like to get involved in our work, we may also have opportunities for you. Check out our Groups and Businesses section. Moreover, congregations have been central to our mission since our founding in 1999. Learn more about opportunities to support our mission as a congregation here.

We appreciate your interest in supporting our work to end family homelessness in Dane County. We hope to connect with you soon!
