Beacon: churches serving those in need
Beacon is a resource to provide benelovence. We want to connect people in need with the services and resources available.
Beacon Ministries will transform lives and communities in response to Jesus' call to serve the least among us. In carrying out its Mission, Beacon Ministries will honor and foster volunteer action, unconditional acceptance of all persons, interdependence, respect for all religious traditions, and a core belief that all individuals have the capacity to change and grow in personal maturity and independence.
Referrals to Beacon Ministries
Beacon Ministries intake volunteers, working under the direction of the Clearinghouse Director, take and process applications for assistance. They contact church volunteers to make arrangements for some of the services, such as transportation and home repair. Other requests for assistance are verified with different sources (often by church volunteers) and passed on to partner churches or appropriate agencies. Clients with financial needs are encouraged to find their own sources of help based on the referrals we give them and to report back to us on the success of these requests. Follow-up calls are made to clients who don't report back on their own.
