MUM’s Greater Isthmus Group (GIG) is a group of representatives from faith communities, community organizations, and concerned citizens some with and some without permanent housing. Traditionally GIG has been concerned with housing issues and it was GIG that helped to secure the initial funding to start the Warming House in Dane County. More recently GIG has been focused on what communities and people of faith can do to help strengthen and improve our shelter system while focusing on long term solutions to homelessness.
