~ This Month’s Share the Plate Partner ~

 

Beacon’s community partner for April – June 2024 is
Flagstaff Shelter Services (FSS)

Established in 2006 by concerned citizens., business owners, and faith-based organizations, FSS provides critical shelter, food, and access to resources for Flagstaff’s most vulnerable people. Regardless of faith, mental health or sobriety, and ethnicity, the shelter serves any adult experiencing homelessness.

In 2014, FSS became a year-round shelter serving those in need every day and night of the year, providing personal and behavioral crisis response, on-site health clinic, and helping clients move from crisis toward self-sufficiency.

The shelter sees 2000 unduplicated individuals per year: 20% are vets, 40% are women (98% of the women have experienced domestic violence) and 21% are older than 55. 86% of the individuals do not return to homelessness.

Undesignated contributions to the quarter’s Sunday service offerings above $300 will be presented to the Flagstaff Shelter Services. Nominations for 501c3 agencies can be made through a form located in the CAC folder in the office or by contacting a CAC member (Susan Patrick, Katy Grant, Lynda L. Dorweiler).
