Reaching out to the Flagstaff area community, this committee solicits proposals from Beacon members to support local non-profit groups and activities. Members may complete and send a nomination form to the Beacon office.  Undesignated contributions to each month’s first four Sunday service offerings above $350 (which goes to Beacon’s operational budget) will be presented to the non-profit chosen by the Social Action Team, based on proposals submitted by the congregation.

Share the Plate


~ This Month’s Share the Plate Partner ~
 
 
For October-December, Beacon will share the plate with Housing Solutions of Northern Arizona and Sharon Manor. 
Housing Solutions helps local residents identify and maintain safe, decent, and affordable housing. It offers counseling to help homeowners avoid foreclosure, credit counseling, pre-purchase assistance and works with AHC in constructing or remodeling homes using sustainable green building solutions. Through Sharon Manor, the organization helps homeless victims of violence and their children on their journey out of violence and poverty and into economic independence, safety, health, and self-sufficiency. Domestic violence is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women and their children in the United States. Local shelters play a critical role in helping families in crisis, but they are short-term in nature.  Housing Solutions is currently remodeling a hotel to provide transitional occupancy for the homeless.   
The impact for 2020 showed :
28 families obtained first-time home ownership
178 people received pre-purchase or credit counselling
113 received foreclosure assistance
25 rental units are occupied
78 found safety at Sharon Manor
Undesignated contributions to this quarter’s Sunday service offerings above $300 will be presented to Housing Solutions of Northern Arizona and Sharon Manor. Nominations for 501c3 agencies can be made through a form located in the office in the CAC folder or by contacting a CAC member.    
CAC members are Susan Patrick, Katy Grant, Joanne Parkes, and Lynda L. Dorweiler.
