Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer in Middleton & Madison WI at Attic Angel Community

Attic Angel Association – the 501(c)3 organization of volunteers and fund-raisers – has been the wind beneath the wings of community service in Madison since 1889. We're Attic Angel - The One and Only!

The first “attic angels,” descending from their attic with armloads of goods to share, focused on the health and human service needs of children. Eventually, their hearts encompassed older adults as well. Today, the needs of both children and seniors are in the forefront of our volunteer efforts, with a focus on serving the living and health care needs of Attic Angel Community residents.

Nearly 500 volunteer Angels provide approximately 35,000 hours of service and give grants totaling in the six digits annually for causes that benefit children and seniors throughout Dane County. Our signature fund-raising events allow the whole community to participate in our good works, but it is our Angels who make it all happen.

We invite you to look deeper into who we are and to join the Angels in working for the good of the community. When you become a member of our historic Attic Angel Association, you will make a mark that will live well into the future!

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
