The Homeless Resources Guide [en español] (Updated )] provides helpful information on some of the resources available in our community for individuals and families in need.

If you are in need of shelter, please call the Dane County Housing Crisis Line at 1-855-510-2323. Case managers are available Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., but you can call the line at any time to find a connection to services.

If you are looking for additional homeless services, please visit the Homeless Services Consortium Website on-line at for a listing of local agencies and the resources they provide.

If you are in need of a service not listed, please call the United Way of Dane County at 2-1-1 for additional information on food, housing, employment, health care, and more, or visit them on-line at
