Beacon Place is Celebrating 5 Years of Serving the Waukegan Community
Beacon Place began in fall of 2012 and over the last 5 years we have seen families become healthier, kids perform better in school, adults connect and learn new things, and individuals set their sites on a new future. We have watched a community come together, creating a bright spot in an area that was looking for hope.
We can’t stop now. The growth and demand for our programs continues and the next 5 years will bring more kids, more families, more hopes, more dreams.
