About Us


Housing Navigation Services (HNS) is a program of Catholic Charities Dane County made with the aim of providing compassionate, caring, and culturally conscious services to individuals and families experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness. Our mission is to help the poor and vulnerable in our community utilize the resources and programs made for them and to make this often stressful navigation as easy to understand and as personalized as possible. We want to address your personal needs, preferences, and barriers to achieving housing.

Our staff uses an individualized approach with each person or family, determining the level of assistance or case management needed while establishing a personalized housing plan. Additionally, resources such as employment and training, benefits, and overall health services are factored into housing plans.

If you would like to know what specific services we provide, please check out the Our Services section of our website.
