Attic Angel Association is a Madison original with a deeply rich history. There’s no other organization quite like ours, and you are invited to be part of our legacy. We have a strong commitment to caring for children and seniors and improving the quality of life in Dane County. Join us!

  1. To become a member, you must be sponsored by a current Angel. We can help arrange sponsorship if necessary. Please indicate your interest by using our contact form or calling 608-662-8900.

  2. New members (called Interns) start their year in April and meet as a group once a month for 10 months of the first year to learn about methods of care for our aging residents. You’ll also come to know the Attic Angel Touch – our exceptionally warm and thoughtful ways of adding to their care.

  3. Active members are required to volunteer a certain number of hours each year. This allows Angels to fully engage in our community, try new things and understand resident needs on a deeper level.

  4. Our members bring many distinct skills and interests and serve in many capacities. A major focus is providing care and service to our residents at Attic Angel Place. Members also take part in fund-raising events to help other nonprofit organizations in Dane County.

  5. Leadership opportunities exist at all levels, thanks to 24 standing and advisory committees in addition to the three Boards of Directors for Attic Angel Community.

  6. All members, including Interns, are welcome to sponsor new members as we strive to make an even greater difference in our 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!
