Stronger Together: Board of Directors Meet for their Annual Retreat

Members of The Beacon Board of Directors gathered for their annual board retreat on November 30th at United Way of Greater Houston. The session started with an interactive activity where board members were tasked with a timed puzzle-making exercise.

 Ronnie Hagerty of United Way's Nonprofit Connection presented the group with an overview of best practices for strong board leadership and the afternoon was spent reviewing the six goals of the organization's strategic plan and the progress towards each of them. We are grateful to have such strong, dedicated leadership!

Thanks to Night Court for the Continued Support! 

The Beacon is thankful to have been a recipient of $16,500 from Night Court. Night Court brings the story of the U.S. Constitution to the stage with a cast of lawyers and judges. Night Court has been generously providing The Beacon's legal program, Beacon Law, with a financial contribution for three years. This partnership allows The Beacon's legal program to provide civil legal aid to homeless and low-income individuals in Houston.

Happy Holidays from The Beacon!

Last week, the entire Beacon staff got a chance to relax and connect at the annual holiday party. The Development team informed the other staff members about fundraising with a fun game of Development Bingo and everyone showcased their culinary skills by bringing their favorite dishes to share. A few staff members also tried their luck at securing the best gift in our white elephant gift exchange.
