Homelessness is an endemic issue and can result from poverty, catastrophic medical illnesses, long waiting lists for affordable housing or release from incarceration or medical facilities, etc. This has become a more acute problem during the recent recession and ongoing pandemic.
MadisonHome is a centralized and unified platform for the cooperation between multiple civic, religious, and community organizations, to help the homeless with multiple related vulnerabilities, and the general community to prevent future homelessness.
MadisonHome, Inc. has been registered with the Commonwealth of Kentucky as a non-profit organization to spearhead and coordinate this effort. It has been approved by IRS as a tax-exempt public charity.
It is a community-wide effort for fundraising, soliciting grants, accepting donations, and management of day-to-day activities.
Volunteers of MadisonHome arrange short-term and long-term housing, assist in seeking employment, distribute food and clothing.
