- Call for solutions to homelessness in our communities
- Create affordable housing
- Coordinate Families Moving Forward shelter program
We began as one congregation, Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis, whose members and clergy mobilized to renovate a vacant nursing home, turning it into Lydia Apartments, now home to 40 formerly homeless individuals who have a community of support and a safe, warm and comfortable homes.
Today we are nearly 90 congregations strong. About 800 people live in Beacon housing. Our hosting congregations shelter up to 12 families at a time, every night of the year.
