YWCA Madison

Empower Home

Empower Home, a partnership with the United Way Dane County, Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS), and UNIDOS Against Domestic Violence provides women survivors of domestic violence, who are homeless or in need of transitional housing to flee a domestic violence situation, the opportunity to live in safe, supportive transitional housing.

The program’s goal is to provide survivors a safe environment to heal. During their time in the program they will have access to a case manager who can assist them on skills to enhance their life and help them maintain their safety. Graduates will be empowered to pursue their goals for employment, financial stability, healthy family relations, social connectedness, parenting, health care, and mobility.
