Your Work Matters

In the meantime, watch this video to remind yourself of why you’re working on to find an end to homelessness in our community. This video provides great context on the greater vision of Beacon. Your work on this luncheon makes a huge difference in the lives of more than 875 people who live in Beacon housing or are a guest of our shelter program. This short video shares three of those stories, from Thomas, Doran and Jon and Ana. Please feel free to share this with your friends who you think might be interested in joining our cause at the luncheon or on a tour of a Beacon property. To view the video that was presented at last year’s Ending Homelessness Together luncheon, please see below or click here.

Above all, thank you for the work you are doing for Beacon! This luncheon is a critical part of our organizational strategy for the year and provides significant resources to continue our work.
