Housing Services

The Beacon serves as a Coordinated Access hub, providing housing assessments for individuals experiencing homelessness and matching them to appropriate, supportive housing options. 


The organization also provides housing navigation services to bridge the challenges one faces when moving from the street into stable housing.
