SPE-GCS YP Volunteering at the Beacon

Please join SPE-GCS Young Professionals in their support of The Beacon, a nonprofit organization helping the poor and homeless populations of the Houston area. Since opening in 2007, the Beacon has grown from serving 80 clients per day to serving 600-800 clients daily in four core programs: The Beacon Day Center, Cathedral Clinic at The Beacon, Brigid's Hope at The Beacon, and Cathedral Justice Project at The Beacon. These four programs come together under one roof to provide meals, showers, laundry service, case management, medical and psychiatric care, pro bono legal services and pastoral care.

 

More than 85% of the services of The Beacon are operated by volunteers. On July 12th, it will be the SPE-GCS Young Professionals that answer the call to service. Please come and bring friends or family.

 

Please have a good breakfast before coming to the event in order to remain fit throughout the event, because it goes beyond the regular lunchtime and involves some physical activity.

If you want, please bring gently used or new items to donate.
