Description: The Beacon is more than a meal. It's a way out of homelessness. Our organization meets the daily needs of hundreds of homeless men and women while also empowering them with housing case management, appropriate program referrals, and civil legal aid. Our organization does not provide overnight shelter.
The Day Center:
The Day Center is open Thursday through Monday from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The Day Center provides a hot lunch, access to showers, and laundry services and serves as the central hub for referral services to our other programs including housing assessments with Coordinated Access, pro bono legal services with Beacon Law, and case management and mail privileges with COMPASS as well as access to the Cathedral Clinic run by Healthcare for the Homeless.
Brigid's Hope at The Beacon
Brigid's Hope at The Beacon offers transitional housing and supportive services in an effort to reduce the number of women returning to the criminal-justice system.
Beacon Law provides pro bono legal services for Houston's homeless and low-income individuals including ID restoration and criminal sealing cases.
Through the Way Home initiative, homeless individuals are able to receive housing assessments onsite Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
After merging in 2019, COMPASS and its services are now officially a part of The Beacon. These services include mailbox privileges, transportation services, walk-up case management, and access to the Harris Health System.
