The Beacon

The Beacon is Dane County’s first and only comprehensive day resource center for people who are experiencing homelessness. The Beacon helps over 250 men, women, and children each day, 365 days a year. Along with basic needs services, it is a one-stop-shop for people to connect with other area social services agencies who have offices right here at The Beacon on 615 E. Washington Avenue.


Do you want to spend your time doing something meaningful for someone less fortunate? Then our center could be the right place for you! Volunteers must be age 18+ and are required to complete a background check before working at The Beacon. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
