Urban Triage is founded and grounded in transformational education and learning that utilizes a framework to support people as they embark on a journey of self-discovery. Our methodology expands self-awareness of the basic structures in which we know, think, and act. From understanding and awareness comes fundamental shifts that directly cause a new kind of freedom and personal POWER, leaving people permanently changed.  

"You have changed my life, and I mean that the guidance I received from all of the books, videos, actually practicing what was learned is invaluable. The information you've curated and turned into a class for FREE is beyond unbelievable, and the way you passionately preach and love Black people is so inspiring. How you've created a safe space for Black people to identify and overcome our traumas and connect with each other is POWERFUL. I could go on for days about this woman and her work and how it's given me a new sense of liberation, but I'm going to stop here and say thank you, I believe in you, your mission, and the message, and I'm here for all of it."

Housing Resource List

Urban Triage is excited to roll out our Housing Resource List, replacing the Dane County Vacancy List. The List is not all-inclusive; it is a resource for searching for housing options. Please feel free to print the PDFs below or use our online search option, which is located here. 

Many apartments recorded on our Housing Resource List are within the Fair Market Rates (FMR) for Dane County, WI. HUD established these rates to identify affordable housing options. 

Please note that Urban Triage and our Housing Navigation Specialists are not responsible for the conditions, terms of leases, or quality of management services of the housing units listed. You are responsible for inspecting and obtaining information about the housing and management services you are interested in. Please be aware that most units listed here are advertisements from the Internet and other online sources.
