Back to School Program

Back to School Program

The Back to School Program ensures that children in our area receive the tools they need to succeed in school. This includes backpacks stuffed with grade level supplies for children in Pre-K through high school and supplies for college students.  

The Back to School Program is one of many ways that MOM is working to keep families in stable housing, supplying them with the assistance needed to free up financial resources to pay rent. The program also provides relief to families worried about the extra expense, and joy to children as they prepare for a great year ahead.


Back to School registration is now open! All registered clients received an email with the link to the registration form. If you are a MOM client and need to have the form sent to you, please call 608-836-7338 or email


If you are not able to fill out a form online, a case manager can assist you. Please call to schedule an appointment.

Financial donations also enable us to meet the needs of kids in our community. With financial donations, we are able to fill in the gaps if we don't get enough of a particular item. We also use financial donations to purchase specific items such as extra-large, sturdy backpacks for high schoolers or to fill needs when school social workers request request items. For example. last year we were able to provide earbuds and headphones to kids who didn't have them. Please consider supporting the program financially.  For credit card donations, please write "back to school" in the notes field.
