Opportunity Coach Program

Made Possible by a Community Block Grant from Dane County, with the help of the Sun Prairie Public Library, and run by Shelter From The Storm Ministries, Inc. 
Anyone is free to use this website. We are able to help people in-person who live inside of Dane County but outside of Madison, WI. They also need to earn 80% or below of the median income for our area.
