The House-ability program is a collaborative effort among three local organizations: the YWCA Madison, the Salvation Army, and The Road Home. It serves homeless families who have at least one disabled adult in the household. The House-ability Program follows the Housing First model, which has been extremely successful in other communities. Housing First programs incorporate a set of interventions to help families move more rapidly out of the shelter system (or avoid shelter altogether) and maintain permanent housing.
