Get Involved

For more than four decades, Beacon Therapeutic has been dedicated to serving homeless and at-risk children, teens and families, providing alternative educational opportunities, clinical therapies and other programs to Chicago’s most vulnerable residents.

Although our programs are constantly evolving, Beacon’s success has always depended on the involvement of individuals and organizations. Without the ongoing support of donors, volunteers and partners, it would be impossible for us to fulfill our mission serving children and families throughout the region.
