• Beacon is an interfaith collaborative of congregations ending homelessness through housing, shelter and advocacy.

    Our Congregations »

  • Our goal is to develop 1,000 homes by 2020 with your support. Since 2003 we have created or preserved almost 500 homes for about 800 people: families, youth and adults.
