Reviews for Beacon House Association Of San Pedro
There are not enough words to describe the gratitude and appreciation for the staff at The Beacon House. I recently was able to witness their work first hand at my son's graduation from Phase 1, it was amazing. The love and support that they have for each other and themselves is a true blessing and gave me an opportunity to reflect on what I am doing to give back. This organization is teaching these men to give to anyone in need with love, respect and understanding something this world so desperately needs right now.
I will start with three things I am eternally grateful for and in order, God, the VA Hospital in Long Beach and the Beacon House. I came to the house back in the day when there were only eighteen men in the primary program. Mary P. was the ED, and Luis L. was PD. If it were not for the aforementioned list of three eternally things I am grateful for, I would have not celebrated twenty years of sobriety this past August. As the Beacon House taught me in my early recovery, I could not have achieved the life I have today. The importance of becoming honest with my self, learning to be open-minded, willing to go to any lengths and being of service to others were instilled into me and have been the keys to a happier and more productive life. Although I do not live in the area anymore and have not in years, the Beacon House will always have a special place in my heart.
We have been affiliated with Beacon House for a couple of years and I am forever grateful for all they do. They are an amazing organization that very successfully help men finding their way in life, finding their purpose and learning to live the way they were intended to live, as happy, responsible and loving men. Thanks, to Beacon House we now have our son back in our lives and I honestly don't believe that could have happened without the people at Beacon House. I am thankful to them every day and we continue to give them all the help we can so they can continue the awesome job they do. Thank you all at Beacon House for all you do!
I have been associated with the men of Beacon House for several years. The organization is the best of it's kind. The men are wonderful, appreciative, kind and a wonderful asset to the City of San Pedro and surrounding communities. Just being around the House and listening to to their stories lifts my spirits and makes me want to strive to be a better person. I have attended graduations, their Bistro's and Community breakfasts and I have to say you won't find a better group of dedicated individuals who are giving back to everyone they touch. I belong to an organization called "The Wonder Women". Our prime purpose is to raise funds for Scholarships for the men. We are bursting with pride every time they tell us how well they are doing in school and how much they appreciate our donations. I can honestly say that I LOVE BEACON HOUSE. Marilyn Bennett

The Beacon House is a wonderful organization that has made a huge impact on so many lives. I've been honored to participate in several fund raising events and I've seen first hand how positive an experience the Beacon House is to the men in the program and the people who help outside the program. The Beacon House truly wants to help their men and the men truly want to be helped. I think that's why the Beacon House is so successful!

The Beacon House Family never fails to impress. I have attended a number of events over the years, and each and every one is special in it's own way. Everyone is courteous and kind. The food is wonderful and the service is always great... in that these gentlemen truly appreciate your being there. They are funny and humble. It is always a delight to attend. They give back so generously to the community; assisting other non-profits with events, helping individuals in need, and Joe's crew...working on clearing plant growth and trash pick up...to keep our neighborhoods looking great. Thank you so much for all that you do !

Beacon House is a God send. It gave us our family back. And, provided us an opportunity to give of ourselves to help the Beacon House. You can feel the spirit of God's work any time you are at the Beacon House. I am honored and deeply humbled to be a part of this great recovery home for men.

When I attended my first fund raiser for The Beacon House I was very impressed with several things. First, the men of Beacon House actively participated in the success of the fundraiser. They provided artwork for sale and prepared and served our dinner, which was delicious. We were given the opportunity to meet and interact with the men our funds were serving. Second, I was impressed by the fact that the men are expected to serve their surrounding community by performing voluteer acts themselves. This provides them with a sense of accomplishment and self-worth. Finally, it was made very clear that they are provided with occupational training and/or schooling giving them an exit plan. I used to participate in another program but it did not have any type of follow up or transition program for the participants rejoining society. This is not the case with The Beacon House - the men receive full and complete support in their transition. It is a wonderful and blessed program.
