What We Do

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.

With your help we'll reach our goal of 1,000 homes by 2020.
