Make a Difference


Come to the Table is The Beacon's largest annual fundraiser, with table sales, auction proceeds, and donations comprising approximately 20% of our budget. Several of Houston's award-winning chefs

​As the central hub for all individuals visiting the John S. Dunn Outreach Center, we assist with registration and intake as well as immediate assessment of each client's needs. A hot lunch, access to showers, and laundry services are available Thursdays through Mondays each week.  Beacon Day Center hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Come to the Table

For the health and wellbeing of all, Come to the Table has been postponed until Wednesday, December 8, 2021.

We are grateful to those who have already committed their support to this important event and hope you will join them by contributing to our work that has continued despite the pandemic. 

We have sold out of tables and tickets, but we are still taking donations for the event!
