Beacon Place provides transitional housing for homeless residents. The property includes a computer room, television area, and a communal kitchen. Meals, housekeeping, and laundry services are provided. Some space is reserved for women, veterans, and individuals in need of respite care after a hospital stay. Twenty-four hour on-site case management and support services are provided to all residents. The Coalition’s Beacon Place property was selected as the 2013 AEC Cares community project. Working with Reed Construction Data, Hanley Wood, and the AIA, AEC Cares generously raised funds for a one-day blitz build that made major improvements to Beacon Place. Outdoors, the transformation included new landscaping in the courtyard and community garden, freshly painted outdoor furniture, and a new gazebo. Indoor improvements included new flooring, paint and furniture in the cafeteria, as well as a newly painted hallway and complete makeover of the women’s lounge, including new floors, cabinets, furniture, and a TV.
