Give to Beacon of Hope

Beacon of Hope Shelter does not seek, nor accept any government funding that could compromise our mission. Our yearly audit by an independent firm shows over 85% of every dollar given goes directly to help the homeless and hurting in our region. We operate totally on donations from individuals, churches, and businesses. As a Christ centered unified community ministry we cannot run without the support of our community. We also rely heavily on volunteers serving meals, and helping to sort clothing and donated items for our thrift store “2nd Chance.”

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?
