Social Justice Service

"Recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every human being, we as Unitarian Universalists hold that access to affordable, habitable housing is a fundamental right in a just society. (UUA General Assembly, 1988)

FUS partners with community programs to provide meals, shelter and financial assistance.  It takes many volunteers to do this work! Newcomers welcome.


FUS and Winter Shelter at the Salvation Army

In Madison, the Salvation Army operates the drop-in shelters for both woman and families. When the temperature falls below 20 degrees at night, these shelters go into “overflow” mode, going beyond their usual maximums to offer shelter to all woman and families. FUS provides volunteers to help staff cope with the extra work and crowding on those nights and mornings.  This partnership began in 2013. Our Volunteer Coordinator is Gail Bliss.
To learn more about this FUS project, or to volunteer for this program, Contact Gail here. Learn more about the Salvation Army here.


The Road Home’s Interfaith Hospitality Network

FUS volunteers provide meals, activities, and overnight support at Christ Presbyterian Church, four weeks per year. Families served receive intense case management and housing help from The Road Home.


Porchlight Men’s Shelter Meals

FUS prepares and serves a Saturday night dinner and a Sunday morning breakfast to men at the drop-in shelter at Grace Episcopal, once each month.


Eviction Prevention Fund

FUS also provides direct assistance to individuals and families in the community through our Eviction Prevention Program. This program is funded by donations, which are made by the congregation given during holiday worship services in December. Small grants are awarded for security deposits or rental assistance; Requests for assistance are made via referral by a social worker at one of our partnering agencies. Donations are accepted at any time. Contact Becky Schigiel.
