Beacon of HOPE

Helping Our People Excel

MISSION

The Beacon of H.O.P.E. has been assisting Pine Island’s needy since Hurricane Charlie’s horrific visit in August of 2004. While originally involved in Hurricane recovery, The Beacon of H.O.P.E. has evolved into an important service provider for our communities needy. With the help of dedicated volunteers, the Beacon staff assures the delivery of Meals on Wheels, provides social services counseling, evaluates needs and provides economic assistance. By coordinating with other island agencies, especially FISH and the Food Pantry the Beacon has been able to maximize its impact and provide a safety net for those most in need.

The Beacon continues its disaster relief and recovery efforts with the ongoing household survey, hurricane preparedness booklet & coordination with local preparedness agencies.

The Beacon of H.O.P.E. Thrift store is operated for the greater Pine Island Community and to finance our ongoing mission.
