Five years ago, a home gave them more than a place to sleep. You allow United Way of Dane County to change lives, one family at a time, one stable home at a time. Early in her adult life, Takisha Jordan and her daughter were living independently when the loss of a roommate, and then her job, pushed them to a place she never thought they’d be—homeless. By focusing on Housing First, and providing resources such as financial counseling and access to food, United Way is helping families like Takisha’s achieve success in school, work and life.
