Beacon Housing and Door of Hope Announce Collaboration To Help More Families Facing Homelessness and Domestic Violence
[6 November 2020] Beacon Housing and Door of Hope are delighted to announce a new combined project to operate Casa de Alegria, a transitional housing site for mothers and children rebuilding their lives from homelessness and domestic violence.
This collaboration leverages the extensive experiences, respective strengths, and Christ-centered missions of both organizations. Since 1999, Beacon Housing has provided innovative housing solutions to low-income families in Los Angeles County including at Casa de Alegria; they will continue to own and maintain the 6,000+ square foot house while offering oversight to the programs. Since 1985, Door of Hope has provided holistic transitional housing that helps families overcome the emotional, practical and financial barriers they face in order to transition into permanent housing; they will now implement their transformational program for up to eight families sheltered at Casa de Alegria.
Stronger through this innovative model of collaboration, this project will continue Beacon Housing’s focus on expanding educational opportunities to residents as a means of ensuring long-term housing security, while enabling Door of Hope to shelter, serve, and end homelessness for more families each year.
