Provide Meals

Our numbers vary greatly each day so we serve as few as fifteen up to fifty men each night at the Beacon. They eat at 5:30pm so anyone helping with the meal would have to plan for that many and that time. Contact Annette by phone 515-302-4128 or email

Donate

We operate totally on donations from individuals, churches, and businesses. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a big difference in the lives of the men who will be staying at the Beacon.

We Need Your Help

Beacon of Hope Shelter does not seek, nor accept any government funding that could compromise our mission. As a Christ centered unified community ministry we cannot run without the support of our community.

The Beacon of Hope monthly pledge drive:
One of the challenges of operating a shelter is meeting the monthly expenses. Our goal is to get a 1000 individuals to pledge $30 dollars or more monthly. Can you help us reach this goal?
