Community Programs / Client Services

The Beacon of Hope with its small staff and dedicated volunteers attempts to assess the needs of the Greater Pine Island area and then meet these needs through our own efforts or by interactions with other groups and agencies. No is not an answer.

The office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm.
