Organized for Bold Action

Say 'YES!' to Family Supportive Housing on April 25!

Join the congregations of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative as we announce our bold plans for creating family supportive housing in suburban Hennepin County. We’ve been eagerly building toward this moment, and now is the time for action! We hope you’ll join us to learn about the site of these new apartments, the families who will live and thrive there, and steps we need you to take to help move the process forward.

We need YOUR support to make home a reality for families who love our communities! We hope you’ll come and hear why these homes are so important and how your action can make a difference.
