Housing and Hope


MADISON (WKOW) -- Four Madison area families, once homeless on the streets, now have a home.

They signed leases and moved into apartments on the north side recently purchased by the non-profit group, the Road Home.

The organization now owns two eight unit apartment buildings which will provide 15 low income families affordable housing.

For the families, its a second chance.

"It happened pretty fast. We found out Monday that were going to get into the place and we moved in. We're ecstatic, it's our first place as a family," said Jeff Langlois. He and his family moved in Friday.

It's part of the Road Home's $4.5 million campaign.

They hope to buy two more buildings for a total of 30 apartments for low income families.
