Dane County Assists With New Starts

*Referrals are made by case managers. Priority is given to current clients.*

Launched November 1, 2016, the DAWNS program is a rapid rehousing model: short-term assistance that leads to long-term stability. This program provides case management coupled with financial assistance wherein The Salvation Army provides rent support and renter advocacy. Families sublease units from The Salvation Army until they are able stabilized and able to maintain the unit on their own, whereupon they sign a lease with a third-party landlord directly. Each lease is on a month-to-month basis, renewed every 30 days given the client is following guidelines and working toward their goals.

There is no time limit in this model. Permanent, susainable housing is the end objective. Nationwide, the statistics of this model show that 77% of families enrolled in rapid rehousing do not return to shelter, instead, thriving in a home of their own.  (2015 HUD report)

RISE Program

Direct: 608.250.2211

The RISE Program is dedicated to helping homeless families obtain permanent housing and stabilizing relatively quickly, in months rather than years. Our rapid-rehousing program focuses on housing relocation from homelessness to a family's own housing. RISE provides: security deposit payment, monthly rental assistance, landlord/tenant advocacy and ongoing in-home based case management. The program will generally last one year, but case management services may be extended for up to another year upon client request. The client will be fully stabilized in their home without assistance by the end of the program.

In regards to case management sessions, clients will meet with the RISE case manager at least one time per month to discuss housing stabilization strategies, address any issues, and provide updates. Clients are also required to complete assigned activities including, but not limited to: budgeting, credit repair, employment search, education, etc.

This program does not include housing provided by The Salvation Army. Rather, our case management team will work with your landlord/leasing agency to keep you in your own home or find a more suitable place to live.
