About Beacon of Life

Mission Statement

Creating an environment to empower women in crisis to achieve positive long-term change.


The Beacon of Life is a long term transitional housing facility with a 34 woman capacity. We strive to give women the strength and skills they need to live independently.

The women we serve come from many different backgrounds and individual situations. Some are homeless, other are coming from jails, prison, or other residential treatment programs. We offer many different classes and groups to help these women understand what got them in their particular situations, how to change their behaviors and how to become strong, independent women.
