Wish List

We appreciate the generosity of all of you who care about your neighbors in need. We strive to be good stewards of our resources. Thank you for understanding that we cannot accept donations of items we can't use or store. 

Our wish list

  • More hosting congregations in both our Hennepin and Scott-Carver networks to cover the five weeks that are still blank on the Families Moving Forward hosting schedule.

  • Public funding for the services that change lives for our tenants and shelter guests who must heal from the trauma of homelessness, find meaningful work and achieve stable housing.

  • Your online donation in any amount to support families, youth and adults in our shelter and housing. Please email Elodie Lee or call her at 651-789-6260 x200 if you have questions about giving to Beacon. 

  • You can launch a new home with your gift to the Seeds of Home fund. We only have 22 Seeds to go this year!

    We’ve done the math and it takes $15,000 to start a home—we call it a seed—a seed that when planted by a donor like you can grow into a home. This seed allows Beacon to do all the work needed before the shovel hits the dirt: the planning, organizing, design and financing. The result is a new home for a family like Josielyn

    We are looking for donors to plant the remaining seeds of home for this year—currently 22 seeds to go.  We are able to leverage your donation up to 20 times to secure the capital financing and rental assistance needed to build a home. After much care, your Seed of Home gift bears the most wonderful fruit:  a new future for a neighbor like Keyana who can now focus on her job, her education, and her health and stability. It’s truly amazing what one seed can do!  

    Call us today if you’d like to learn about Seeds of Home. Gift Officer Paul Vliem {651-789-6260 x238. pvliem@beaconinterfaith.org} is looking forward to hearing from you.
