We have always depended on the care of people like you. Every contribution of goods, services, or funds helps us fulfill our mission. We’re especially thankful for the members of our Beacon of Hope Society, whose committed support helps us provide services every day to young people, their families, and their communities.
Every day, we do the work of helping young people write a new narrative for their lives. We give them safe havens, offer security, and help them heal from abuse and trauma. We offer support to their families and communities. We offer guidance as they pick up the pen and take control of writing their second story.
Every month, we rely on resources needed to support young people. We maintain the residential properties where young people find safety, from preparing beds, sheets, and linens, to lawn and leaf care ands home maintenance project, to warm meals and fresh laundry. We coordinate services and material support for families and communities, from after-school programs for elementary school students and teens to groceries, clothing, and counseling services for their families. Our dedicated, experienced staff offers the informed and caring support that a young person needs, to help young people recover and heal from abuse and trauma.
We continually evaluate our work to ensure that we are making the most of what our supporters have given. We perform regular checks to be certain that we are offering quality, effective services to youth and their families in a cost-effective manner. We have received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, an organization that rates charities based on their transparency, for six years in a row. Only four percent of the nation’s charities have achieved this status. This four-star rating shows that we carefully track each dollar received, we take each dollar seriously, and we ensure that each dollar goes to provide for young people, their families, and their communities.
Approximately half of the resources we need to operate come from individuals, the faith community, civic groups, businesses, and private foundations through monetary contributions, in-kind donations, and volunteer work.
We fulfill our mission with generous support from our community. Thank you for giving.
