Family Shelter

(608) 250-2298

Families in need of shelter should call the family shelter intake line at (608) 250-2298 leaving name, family size, and contact information. Families who call in for shelter using the intake line are contacted by the Diversion Specialist within 24 hours to help families assess alternative options to shelter. If no alternatives are identified, the family is added to the family shelter waitlist. Families are asked to call-in once a week to remain active on the waitlist. Families can expect to receive a call back once a week to confirm they are still on the waitlist.

When a shelter room becomes available, the family will be notified, and an intake time will be scheduled. Families will be provided with shelter guidelines, supplies and assigned a housing case manager. Family shelter operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no time limit on length of stay.
