Whatever size gift you make, know that it helps end the cycle of homelessness and break down barriers to a home for all people. At Beacon, we know that we’re more powerful together. Your support helps build the power of our collaborative to ensure that all people have a home.
The Power of Your Gift
$50 a night is what it takes to shelter one person in our Families Moving Forward program, keeping families like Jessica’s together as they search for home. We’re ecstatic that Jessica and her family were able to find stable housing through her hard work with her Beacon Advocate, but there are many more families like Jessica’s in our community.
$225 trains a congregational leader at our Beacon Power Tools retreat, to learn how to build collective power and succeed in our vision of home for all.
$1,000 provides the supportive services for people like Melissa, who discovered that stable housing was the difference between life and death. Residents with supportive services are more likely to experience things like higher wages, more education, community connections, and better health.
$15,000 plants a seed and launches the creation of a home. We are able to leverage your generous gift up to 20 times as we approach move-in day. Your Seeds of Home gift bears the most wonderful fruit: a new future for a new neighbor.
