YWCA Madison

Family Shelter

The YWCA shelter provides housing to families with minor children who are experiencing homelessness. One floor of our downtown housing location features private shelter rooms and a shared kitchen. A YWCA social worker supports each family to help them find housing and to prevent future episodes of homelessness.

Families cannot apply directly to the YWCA for shelter. Instead, they should contact the Dane County Housing Crisis Hotline at 1.855.510.2323, option 3.
