ACTION, Inc. (Madison) provides many services that lend a helping hand. Each county has a dedicated staff member who is always there to assist those living in difficult circumstances, assessing needs and resolving solutions that have freed them from their current situation. Often the immediate situation is too insurmountable to focus on longer-term goals in their lives. As a result of unforeseen circumstances, we may provide assistance with rent, mortgage and utilities. This is where ACTION, Inc. can help. Applications are made by appointment only and can be made by calling the county office in which you live.
