Thank you to all our supporters:
This auction is our major fund raising event of the year. We thank you for your past support. In previous years we utilized the monies to improve current operations and to keep the daily rate at an affordable amount for women coming into our program. With resources continuing to be cut we needed your help now more than ever to continue our mission.

WHAT THE BEACON HOUSE MEANS TO FOND DU LAC AND THE STATE?
Twenty years of operation, admission of the 1,000th client and a catalytic role in creating Fond du Lac’s Heroin Summit. Huge milestones for The Beacon House, a Fond du Lac non-profit need for a women’s alcohol and drug treatment facility. The Beacon House was the first of organization that began in 1993 when a small group of women, lead by Mary Ann Steffes, identified the desperate its kind, a pioneer in the State. Today, it’s one of Wisconsin’s premiere gender specific residential treatment facilities, a professionally credited program offering a transitional living experience for women with addiction. What makes the program truly unique is that mothers in need of treatment with young children are able to bring their little ones
and care for them as they recover.
