E-32 Shelter Conversion Project
The Beacon Rescue Mission recognized after a major hurricane came through the county and displaced 10 families that they would have to be more prepared for the future.
At the time of the hurricane, the shelter was able to house 20 individuals including men, women, and children focusing on transition back into the work force. Through much prayer, God laid on the heart of the founder Gene Love, the necessity to expand and offer services to anyone needing shelter due to inclement weather, natural disaster, or short term emergency.
This is how the vision for E-32 (Emergency "Below 32 Degrees") was born.
The rest is history. God provided, as He always does, the necessary funding and labor of love over the following year as a previous storage area (approximately 1,500 sq. ft) was converted into an additional 25 bed addition to the current shelter.
