Be A Beacon
About Our Foundation
The mission of Beacon is to help an often-overlooked group of American kids, those who are forced to leave everything behind when they are rescued from abuse, negligence, abandonment, or homelessness and enter foster care. Sadly, these kids enter shelters with little more than the clothes on their backs and little hope for their future. Many times, kids don’t have shoes or undergarments, let alone personal hygiene products. And the few possessions they do have are gathered and put in a trash bag for them to carry from place to place. The agencies taking in these kids rarely have resources beyond food and shelter.
Beacon will give them something that they can call their own, something they can carry from place to place proudly. Something to give them hope and valor, to let them know they are loved. The creation of the ‘Beacon Bag‘ gives them a bag that is all theirs, filled with heartfelt items and necessities.
You can be a light in the lives of these children by helping to give them something to call their own. Each zippered canvas Beacon Bag is tailored to the child’s age and needs, and includes things like: personal hygiene products, personal journal, hand held cross and prayer card, stuffed animal, under garments, socks.
"Arise! Shine, for your light has come, the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you."
