Eyes of Hope
The mission of Eyes of Hope Stoughton is to provide young people with after school and summer programs that advance their academic and social development and to encourage them to become lifelong contributors to the community and the world.
Folks Wagons Inc.
Helps those people in need within the Stoughton Area School District by repairing their used cars and if necessary providing replacement cars to families in need. In addition to providing these cars, Folks Wagons provides parts and service for these cars until it is no longer needed.
Host a Family
We match generous donors with families in need within their own communities to provide gifts for the children in order to make the holidays more joyous for all.
Lunch for Vikings
Lunches For Vikings is a volunteer led program that offers free brown bag lunches to kids through 12th grade in the Stoughton Area School District who no longer have access to the free or reduced lunch at school. We provide bag lunches Monday – Friday for all 12 weeks of summer break. We prepare the lunches at the Stoughton Area Youth Center and distribute them at three sites around Stoughton. Lunches include a choice of four different sandwiches, a drink, vegetable, fruit, go-gurt or cheese stick, crackers and a granola bar.
Neighborhood Free Health Clinich
Neighborhood Free Health Clinic provides non-emergency care free of charge to any uninsured adults in Stoughton, WI and neighboring communities.
PEP (Personal Essential Pantry)
Helping with the essentials of personal and household hygiene, showing God’s grace and love through these tangible gifts. As we seek to engage and meet needs in the world around us, we’ve learned that families are able to supplement their groceries at area food pantries and, in some cases, through Food Stamp benefits. However, few resources exist for assistance with non-food essentials: household and personal products.
The Stoughton Area Resource Team, Inc. (START) provides a safety net for those in crisis. It links Stoughton residents under age 55 with community resources, offers advocacy, and provides support in housing, utilities, transportation, health and employment. Case management is offered as well professional life coaching and short term financial assistance when appropriate.
Zeteo Community Home
To serve women who have been sexually exploited by providing long-term housing, holistic care, and a supportive community where they are free to dream and thrive
