Giving Back to Community

Attic Angel Association, the fund-raising and volunteer arm of Attic Angel Community, awarded nearly $200,000 in grants to a total of eight area nonprofit organizations that support pressing needs in the greater community.

Each year, the 500-member Association conducts three community-wide signature fund-raising sales to support the Association’s good works, a long list of which dates back to 1889. Proceeds from the Attic Sale, Classic Clothing Sale, and the Holidays Galore & More Sale all go toward that fiscal year’s outreach focus. In 2019-20, the focus was to provide support for families of children ages 0-13 who are experiencing stress, trauma or mental health issues. 

Grant recipients for 2019-20 are as follows:

  • THE HMONG INSTITUTE - Hmong Brighter Future program - $45,600
  • FAMILY SERVICES OF MADISON, INC. - Helping Families of Young Children with Stress, Trauma and Mental Health Issues program - $25,000
  • THE ROAD HOME - Fair Oaks Case Management and Children's Programs - $20,000
  • CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF MADISON - Behavioral Health in Schools - $12,944
  • ORION FAMILY SERVICES - Infant Mental Health and Child Parent Psychotherapy Training - $16,000
  • FORWARD LEARNING YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS - Child Parent Psychotherapy Program - $12,000
  • THE RAINBOW PROJECT - The Rainbow Mental Health CORE PLUS Project in the Madison Metropolitan School District - $40,000
  • UNITED WAY OF DANE COUNTY - Supporting Youth & Their Families Through School-Based Mental Health and Trauma Intervention - $14,997

Attic Angel Association began in 1889, when two sisters earned the nickname “attic angels” by descending from their attic with armloads of goods to share with children less fortunate. Today, more than 500 members join their ranks to serve both children and seniors throughout Dane County, including those living in Attic Angel Community.

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!
