Why MOM's Here
MOM's mission is to instill hope in our community through progressive programs and partnerships to prevent homelessness and end hunger.
Through the support of business partners, area schools and faith communities, as well as numerous individuals and service organizations, MOM provides - free of charge - food, clothing, housing assistance, emergency financial assistance, and special services for seniors.
Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM) was established in 1980 by a local church in the community to care for the basic needs of some of the area's residents. Over time, multiple faith congregations joined forces to meet the growing demand, and expanding to a service area that includes West Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains.
In 2007, with demand continuing to increase, MOM transitioned into a business-based organization both at the Board and leadership levels. Faith-based congregations continue to provide some of the resources and volunteers that are needed to meet the growing demand.
Middleton Outreach Ministry, Inc., is a registered 501(c)3 organization.
OUR service area
MOM serves all of the Middleton Cross Plains School District, and the part of the west side of Madison (west of Midvale Blvd and north of the beltline.)
"By some counts, children are the majority of the city's homeless, yet they aren't its typical face. They tend not to live on the streets in public view, although that does happen. Rather, a majority of their families are doubled up with relatives or friends, often in substandard conditions. Or they stay in shelters or motels." - The Capital Times (July 7, 2016)
"Food insecurity, when food access is insufficient or uncertain for at least one person in the household at some point in the year, is a day-to-day reality for nearly 12 percent of all people and 17.5 percent of children in Dane County, according to a report from Public Health Madison & Dane County." - The Capital Times (June 11, 2016)
