Welcome To Beacon House

A beautiful angel named Edie Hopper now resides in heaven.
We were so blessed to have Edie and her husband Charlie stay with us for an extended time while she was receiving medical care for her vascular problems.
This lovely and joyful woman brought a smile to the face of every person she encountered here with her delightful and charming ways. She made our house her home and made our staff feel like we were her family.
We will be forever grateful to her and Charlie for the time they spent with us, and will hold our memories of her in our hearts forever. Read more about Edie by clicking here…
At Beacon House, we value all gifts, but none so much as the ones from the heart.
We are in the “LOVE” business! What we do and how we do it is all based upon the great commandment to love our neighbors. And when our neighbors and are need of a safe, affordable place to stay during a medical crisis, we really love to open our house and our hearts to welcome them in. We love providing “One Less Worry” when things are already so difficult for our guests. We love doing it all year long, as medical emergencies know no season.
Giving and getting Love from our guests, volunteers, staff and donors is the greatest gift we receive. That Love comes in so many ways. Sometimes it’s a hug, a smile or a tearful thank you… and sometimes it’s a check to help keep the Love going.
Whatever gift you have to share, don’t forget to do it with Love. There is no comparable gift you could give than the one from your heart.
IT WAS A MONSTER!!

It seems like it’s always snowing in the Keweenaw, and our trip to Houghton on the night of March 20th was no exception. Schools had been closed, and streets were piled high with the latest layer of winter, but our group of Beacon House “Ambassadors” could not be deterred. We had a mission. We were twelve in all, and we boarded our luxury bus, compliments of Checker Limo Service, and prepared ourselves for a blustery ride.
This is the pillow that rests the head of a weary neighbor staying at Beacon House, while…
He is being treated for cancer.
Her premature baby fights for life in the NICU.
He recovers from a limb amputation.
Her father undergoes major heart surgery.
He waits to hear if there is hope.
She waits for the Lord to take him.
He searches for answers.
Beacon House operates on a donation basis and guests are expected to contribute at a level that is affordable for them.
