• 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.

  • Housing is a long-term goal but too many families need shelter tonight. Volunteers in our Families Moving Forward program shelter 12 families every night.

    Families Moving Forward »

  • Volunteer as a Beacon Citizen to influence legislation improving public policies and funding for housing and services to end homelessness.

    Become An Advocate »

  • There are many ways to help end homelessness. By offering opportunities that will work for any commitment level, Beacon makes it easy to make a difference.
