You can provide a man a safe place to recover even in this crisis.

Your urgent gift will help our men and Beacon House

As you can imagine, the Coronavirus continues to cause the cancellation of lots of events and contracts. We are now getting June events cancelled. Our men work at many of those events to keep our doors open. Contracts that earn us money have been cancelled and postponed. And we have closed our Thrift Store.

We are anticipating a $250,000 shortfall!

To those who have already given, Thank you. We still need everyone's help.

You can imagine what would happen if just one man brought the virus back to Beacon House so we continue to minimize public contact. Even small jobs that help our men have been cancelled.

In addition, emergency funds are also still needed. Here's why ...

Our men are losing jobs!

Extreme sanitizing measures continue to be taken. Supplies and materials not normally needed have been purchased. Each man's health issues have to be addressed. Years of drugs and alcohol abuse don't build the best immune systems.

Acting responsibly, we have set up one of our buildings for an emergency quarantine facility.

We continue to support the homeless with meals. The most vulnerable cannot be overlooked. Numbers at the Homeless Shelter are increasing.

We need to purchase additional food (not in our budget) because LAUSD Schools have closed and the excess food that we pick is not available.

Again, we have to purchase additional food because markets that have us pick up food that is not sold is not available due to the panic buying that is occurring and restaurant closures.

You know what it is like to not hear from a loved one in a crisis so we have set up additional communications stations so our men can speak to their families to reassure them that they are ok and so the men can know that their families are also safe.

None of us have ever experience such a situation like this. And you, like our staff, I'm sure will rise to the challenge.

With almost 100 men living together one false step would rip through the whole House.

You can help, replace an hour of lost income with a $15 gift. $30 for two hours and $45 for three. You can also give a week and even a month!

Please if you can, support our men. Your gifts make an incredible impact on our men. Knowing that you care, knowing that you want to make a difference inspires them. And most importantly you will be supporting their recovery.

Thank you,

Brian
