City of Madison Hotel Program
Focus Counseling works in partnership with the City of Madison to support individuals experiencing homelessness in the Madison area. The Vulnerable Population Hotel (VPH) and Medical Respite Center (MRC) were established in 2020 to provide a safe space for those experiencing homelessness who also are at a greater risk of critical outcomes from contracting the COVID 19 virus or exposed to or diagnosed with the COVID 19 virus. Equus now manages the VPH & MRC Programs. Their contact information is below.
If you, or someone you know, is experiencing homelessness, please contact one of the
Dane County Outreach Service Providers listed in this brochure for assistance with shelter.
