Quarterly Update: January 2024 - March 2024

Over the last three months, Beacon Center has continued to work actively to provide hope, safety, and resources for survivors of violence in our community. See below for a few of the things we have been up to:

Concert For A Cause

On January 5th, Beacon Center hosted our first annual Concert For A Cause! This inaugural event raised over $5,000 for our programs. Thank you again to each of our event sponsors: Studio 212, TCE Beef, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, Smoke Solutions, American Bank and Trust, Glacial Lakes Rubber and Plastics, Zach Wipf Construction, Crenlo Engineered Cabs, Exit Realty, Woofs 'n Wags Doggy Daycare and Hotel, and J&J Earth Works, Inc.

Family Visitation Center

Beacon Center’s Family Visitation Center has seen a busy three months. During this time, 15 new parent orientations were completed and 109 visitation hours were logged. This quarter, the Family Visitation Center served 19 families, totaling 35 children.

Excuse Our Dust

As April approaches, we wanted to take a moment to share a brief update on what's been happening here at Beacon Center.

As we welcomed the New Year, we encountered an unexpected challenge when a sprinkler pipe broke in our Shelter. This unfortunate incident required us to temporarily relocate everyone to a nearby hotel while we awaited an assessment from the insurance adjuster and Service Master. While the water damage was significant, we are immensely grateful that the situation wasn't more severe.

Currently, we are in the final stages of cleaning up the aftermath. Three of our apartments have remained operational throughout this process, but we are eagerly working on completing the cleaning and repairs to fully utilize all eight of our apartments once again.

We want to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to our community for the unwavering support you've shown us during this time. Your generosity and kindness have been instrumental in helping us navigate this unexpected challenge.

As we move forward, please know that we remain committed to our mission of providing a safe and supportive environment for those in need. Your continued support enables us to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and families within our community.

Thank you once again for standing with us.

Warm regards,

Dawn Sikkink

Executive Director
