A National Resource

Attic Angel’s Story Goes National! Attic Angel’s 130th anniversary history book from 2019 has been added to the permanent collection of the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.


It’s housed in the catalog section of the National Institutes of Health website that features resources about the history of medicine. The Attic Angel story includes fundraising to build Madison’s first hospital, hiring the city’s first nurse to visit homes with children, conducting well-child clinics, and blazing new trails for senior living and health care.

The 27-page illustrated book is also available at this link: chrome-extension://efaidnbmnnnibpcajpcglclefindmkaj/https://atticangel.org/images/events-news/AnniversaryBook.pdf

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!
