Review for Beacon House Association of San Pedro, San Pedro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Beacon House Asoc. of San Pedro takes men who are broken and lost and provides a path for these men to retrieve what had been lost through alcoholism and drug addiction. The men of The Beacon House receive group and individual counseling, and attend a minimum of (10) 12-Step meetings per week. All men attend parenting classes, anger management classes, relapse prevention classes, alcohol and drug awareness classes as well as educational and vocational guidance. Every man in the Beacon House learns the esteem building value of giving back and contributes 15-35 hours per week to community service. All toll the men of The Beacon House contribute over 45,000 hours per year to other nonprofits, faith based, and community organizations at an estimated $500,000 annually. When the men graduate the primary phase of the program they can elect to continue on to phase II where they spend an additional 18-36 months going to school or vocational training to enhance their employability. When this phase is completed men are ready to leave The Beacon House Asoc. with a Job, theier own home, transportation and some money in the bank. As an alumni he is invited back to share his experience with those that come behind. I know of no other organization that commits to this level of recovery. It is no wonder that 88% of the men who stay long enough to complete the program as prescribed never drink or use drugs again. Never....

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

RECOVERY FOR A SEEMINGLY HOPLESS STATE OF MIND AND BODY.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

THE BEST!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

OWN ALL OF THE PROPERTIES OF THE ASSOCIATION OUTRIGHT AND BUILD EVEN MORE FACILITIES TO PROVIDE EXTENDED SERVICES SUCH AS A MEDICAL DE-TOXIFICATION CENTER.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
