Who We Are

Beacon is an interfaith collaborative of congregations committed to ending homelessness through housing, the Families Moving Forward shelter program, and public advocacy.

We are a nonprofit organization and donations to fund our work are tax deductible.

Plymouth Congregational Church was the founding congregation of Beacon (formerly known as Plymouth Church Neighborhood Association). Lydia Apartments was its first supportive housing development, which opened in 2003. 

Today Beacon is:

  • Nearly 90 congregations committed to ending homelessness in the Twin Cities
  • Board, staff and volunteers passionate about the power of home
  • About 800 residents no longer worried about finding home
  • 75 families each year finding shelter and support for housing stability
