Friends of the State Street Family
Our Mission is to alleviate human suffering by providing help and hope to people experiencing homelessness in Dane County by connecting them with essential resources.
The resources in Madison are overburdened and unable to meet the basic survival needs with the current population. Friends of the State Street Family works to fill the gaps that impact those who are on the street and in desperate need.
The values we anchor to are dignity, collaboration, friendship, trust and community.
We work to develop trust and foster a relationship… to become a friend. Our goal is to help our friends on their journey to permanent, supportive housing, support for sobriety, trauma counseling, medical or mental health care. This includes networking with our partners in the Madison community. This collaboration strengthens us all in our ability to help our friends.
Friends of the State Street Family provides help and hope, giving our friends basic need services for survival.
