Helping Neighbors is a Sun Prairie Way of Life
Sunshine Place is more than a building.
Sunshine Place is a single point of access to social services Sun Prairie residents need to support themselves in time of need. The following entities are represented under the Sunshine Place umbrella – with many of the services having offices in Sunshine Placeat 18 Rickel Road.
The organizations Sunshine Place supports:
o Emergency Food Pantry
o The Red Barn thrift store
o Joining Forces for Families
o Home Mission Fund
o Sun Prairie Community Help Organization
o Stuff the Bus
o Sunshine Suppers
o Sunshine Connections
o Access Point
o Housing First Sun Prairie
Established in 2004, Sunshine Place started as a vision of a small group of citizens in 2001 to be a single point of access organization for the Emergency Food Pantry and The Red Barn which had several separate locations throughout their history.
100% donor-funded and volunteer-run
All organizations supported by Sunshine Place are lead by a committee leader, committee members or a paid staffer in the case of some of the organizations that lease space in Sunshine Place.

Keep helping your neighbors
We hope, Sun Prairie neighbors will continue to have a big heart and encourage their friends and neighbors to join them the next time they volunteer or donate something. It’s our mission, in part, to make sure the children of Sun Prairie are healthy and happy. It takes everyone’s effort to help raise children in a safe environment.
That’s why we are so determined to share our voice with others who can help.
We all have the opportunity leave a legacy on a community that has been supportive of us. Please contact us to let us know if you need help or if you can help someone else by volunteering.
