Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative develops and sustains deeply affordable homes throughout the
metro. Kimball Court, a historic building located in the Midway of St Paul that is now home to residents
with disabilities coming from homelessness, is scheduled to be renovated soon and is already
undergoing improvements in management and services. Beacon’s partner, Avivo supports residents in moving in quickly and pursuing their own goals in areas such as mental and physical health, employment, or addiction recovery. As residents who move in from encampments or shelter arrive with few possessions, the household items provided help them settle into their own home for the first time in a long time.
As new residents move in this winter, there is an urgent need for household items and winter coats and
gear. Your contributions of the requested items will help residents stretch their dollars – cooking pots
will help them to prepare their own meals rather than relying on convenience stores. Fresh sheets and
towels are an expense that may not otherwise be within reach.
Here’s how to give:
