PORCHLIGHT: SHEDDING LIGHT ON HOMELESSNESS
GUESTS: Steve Schooler, Executive Director, Porchlight
Diane Ballweg, Chair, Madison Cares Capital Campaign
Who cares about the homeless? Porchlight does and is tackling the chronic issue of homelessness and mental illness with renewed vigor. Porchlight is our community's link to the homeless, providing emergency shelter, food, employment services, counseling and affordable transitional and permanent housing to homeless people in the Dane County area. The needs are great, and no one knows better than Steve Schooler and Diane Ballweg who are working to raise awareness and money to build a facility to provide affordable housing and professional case management for the area homeless. They share their story on this program.
