Organization Information

Mission Statement

Beacon is a neighborhood faith community located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia that strengthens its local community, its children and neighbors, through faith, art, and storytelling.

Description

Beacon Church is a neighborhood faith community that has offered secular (non-religious) creative programming for children since the beginning. We encourage and empower young people to discover and strengthen their innate voice through creative writing, storytelling, and visual arts. We are partnering with Hackett Elementry School to bring our creative writing program, called Story Studio, to life on campus. We join Hackett students K-5th grade in the library on weekly basis to write, read, listen, play, and build relationships.
