The Beacon House shelter, located in downtown Eau Claire, can house up to 6 six families at a time. Families can stay for up to 30 days. Extensions are granted if families are working on their goals and need additional time. The shelter is supported by volunteers from over 20 area congregations that make up the Interfaith Hospitality Network. This network of volunteers provides the evening meal for our families as well as staff the building overnight.
Families are accepted from all counties although priority is given to current Eau Claire county residents and those showing a strong intent to remain in the area.
