Addressing Critical Needs Thanks to Bank of America

We are grateful for our continued partnership with Bank of America. As a recent grant recipient of the Bank of America Charitable FoundationThe Beacon will continue its work as a front door to stable housing for thousands of homeless men and women in Houston.

This summer, we also hosted a student intern through their Student Leaders Program.  Anuj was instrumental in helping us re-design our website, giving it a fresh look and improving navigation.  He also spearheaded a volunteer survey, collecting key information that will help us improve our volunteer efforts.

From Homeless to Housed 
One Client's Success Story


 

Mr. Hampton a grateful tenant of Permanent Supportive Housing as result of The Beacon and The Way Home Initiative moved into his apartment on June 15, 2017. Although now a success story, this was not always the circumstance for Mr. Hampton. After being involved in a tragic accident in 2013 resulting in his left leg being amputated, Mr. Hampton has struggled to maintain stable, suitable housing with handicap accessibility. After many months of enduring difficulties of living in substandard housing he decided to move in with a friend. His friend soon noticed that Mr. Hampton appeared to be very depressed and encouraged him to seek mental health evaluation. He sought help at Cathedral Clinic, and received very pertinent information regarding depression and Phantom Pain. During the months to follow depression rendered him hopeless and alcohol became his only companion. He became homeless, sleeping most nights in the downtown area near The Beacon or near Minute Maid Park and depended on The Beacon Day Center for a hot meal, laundry, and a shower. After seeing several of his friends become housed, the desire grew in him, as well. Becoming sober, he received a housing assessment at The Beacon. Mr. Hampton gives all praises and thanks to The Beacon and God.
