The Beacon - Homeless Day Resource Center Volunteer Application
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Day Resource Center!

We are accepting applications now, but there is a bit of a wait to attend an orientation. To apply all volunteers must be 18 years of age. Please fill out the form below and submit it. If you have any difficulty, prefer a paper application, or have general questions about the different opportunities or shift times available, please call Lynn Currie at (608)826-8022, or email at

We are open 7 days a week 365 days a year from 8-5. Generally, we have about 140 volunteer shifts available each week. During COVID, we are only staffing four primary roles: Kitchen (AM and PM shifts), AM Laundry, AM Shower Attendant, and Computer Lab/Float (AM and PM Shifts). Shift availability varies from day to day.

The next step will be to have you attend an orientation. You should hear back from Lynn within 5 days of your application, with additional details. We are holding initial orientations on Zoom. At orientation, we will review volunteer roles that are currently available and we will set up an on-site orientation.
