MADISON -- “This is more than a shelter. This is more than a hangout. This is where people come so that we can help them remove obstacles, get connected to services, and get out of homelessness,” said Jackson Fonder, president and CEO of Catholic Charities Madison.

His words came before the ribbon cutting for the new homeless day resource center called The Beacon.

The Beacon is a joint venture between Catholic Charities Madison, Dane County, the City of Madison, and United Way of Dane County.

The ribbon cutting took place on October 12 at The Beacon on Madison’s east side, with representatives from all of the partner organizations, as well as other supporters.

It happened one day before a public open house and three days before the center’s official opening on October 16.
