Beacon of Life
Through 38 years, Beacon of life has developed into one of the most special non profit organizations in the metro. Program participators receive tools in how to become self-sufficient after experiencing homelessness, trauma, substance abuse battles and domestic violence situations. The organization houses 34 women, 85% whom have been involved in the criminal justice system.
Beacon of Life was founded in 1980 by a series of Methodist churches in the Des Moines area and has grown to provide numerous programs to assist survivors into their journey to serendipity. Empowerment for sober living, advocating for positive thinking and employment opportunities are just a few key tools that this program provides its residents.
Our program isn’t just about finding a job or having a place to live — it’s about repairing broken relationships, building new ones, creating boundaries and strengthening the mind, body and spirit. -Beacon of Life
