Beacon Community Connections
Beacon Community Connections advocates for the well-being of every member of our community by creating connections to resources and organizations. Community Care Navigation, a program started by Beacon, targets vulnerable populations such as homeless, elderly, and mentally ill individuals by providing support services to maximize health and well-being. Our Community Care Navigators case manage individuals referred to us from local hospitals. Our clients have many social determinants of health. They struggle affording food, may have no housing or unstable housing, and have lost hope when it comes to leading a healthy, stable life. Our Navigators contact clients on a weekly basis after their discharge from a local hospital and continue to follow up with them over the course of 90 days. Most of our clients have absolutely no supports, their Community Navigator is typically their only advocate. In our experience, just the weekly contacts and the relationships that we build over the next few months of checking-in with these individuals has drastically improved their sense of well-being and hope. Any donations will go towards Community Care Navigation and will allow us to continue forming these relationships while caring and connecting our clients to holistic supports.
