JustDane is honored to have been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Otto Bremer Trust. Funds from this grant will be used to sustain Healing House, which shelters families struggling with homelessness, who need a place to recuperate after medical treatment or childbirth. Since opening our doors in July 2019, 157 individuals and 55 families have been guests of Healing House. Located in Madison and staffed 24/7, Healing House relies entirely on financial contributions and support from individuals, congregations, organizations and businesses in the community we serve.
