Guests: Pastor Scot Sorensen, former Senior Pastor, Bethel Lutheran Church; Jackson Fonder, President/CEO, Catholic Charities of Madison
It could be called the Christmas spirit in action when Pastor Scot Sorensen and Jackson Fonder sat down together and with a quick shake of the hands, agreed to partner to keep the Homeless Day Shelter at Bethel Lutheran Church open throughout this winter. Coming together means not only providing the staff and services but covering 100% of the cost as well.
Homelessness is considered one of the biggest problems facing the Madison area and is the story of real people suffering from domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse or economic hardships. On this program, you will hear how the Day Center at Bethel is providing a sense of belonging, trust and family to people who have no where else to go. Learn also of the expanding plans to provide shelter and services to Madison’s homeless population with the eventual goal of eliminating homelessness in our community.
