Beacon Housing – Interfaith Housing Collaborative
Here’s some of what we do:

  • Call for solutions to homelessness in our communities
  • Create affordable housing
  • Coordinate Families Moving Forward emergency shelter program

    We began as one congregation, Plymouth Church in Minneapolis, whose members and clergy mobilized to renovate and refurbish Lydia Apartments, now home to 40 formerly homeless individuals who have a community of support and safe comfortable homes.

    Today we are more than 50 congregations strong. We have developed nearly 500 homes, about half of which offer supportive services. Nearly 800 people live in Beacon housing. With our congregational partners we shelter up to eight families at a time, every night of the year.

    We have four housing developments in planning now, for youth, families and individuals whose backgrounds present challenges to housing stability. With your support we will reach our goal of 1,000 homes by 2020.
