The Stoughton Area Resource Team, Inc. (START) provides a safety net for those in crisis. Recently, a 30-year old single father of two struggled to find work, to pay for daycare for his children and to secure a home; so much time was spent homeless and hopeless.

Assist the poor and needy in the SASD - 2018 Amount Funded: $3,000.00
Any funds we receive would allow us to help more of the poor and needy in the Stoughton Area School District. Based on the amount of requests we receive our treasury can get quite low at times and that severely limits the amount we can provide. Any amount you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
We receive calls from the church office, START, Dane County Human Services, and other community groups. Each week we have a team of two of our members who are on call. They visit the client, normally in their home, to discuss the request and see if there are any other needs we can help with. We provide assistance with rent, utilities, emergency housing, and other basic expenses. We make sure they are aware of all the resources available to them: furniture/clothing at our store, food pantries, help with medical services and prescriptions, county resources, etc. In order to maximize the use of our funds we limit the amount we give a client. We review the limit at our monthly meeting and adjust it based on the current balance in our treasury. Our checks are never given directly to the clients but sent directly to whoever is owed the money.
