For our Open House in December 2019, Mrs. Laurita set up a project for Beacon House.

At our Christmas Open House we had a puzzle picture where each one could choose a puzzle piece with needed items. It was titled “Our Picture is Not Complete Without YOU!” Our goal was for each item chosen, the person would get a group, organization, church, etc., to help him or her collect as many as possible of that item.

We’ve received piles of donations! We are very thankful that our community shows up for us when we speak out about what we need. When you work with us – donating items or funds, sharing our posts, pointing qualified job applicants our way, or any other way you’ve cheered us on – you help make the puzzle pieces fit together.

But we didn’t get everything, so we wanted to post about it on the website and Facebook to give people a chance to fill in the missing puzzle pieces.
