Support our Mission

The Beacon is providing a more effective way for women to recover from trauma, substance use, and mental illness. You can be a part of this movement in Iowa: healthier individuals, happier families, and better communities – for all of us.

Women
about

Investing in change.

When you support The Beacon, you are agreeing that the women we serve are not criminal; rather, due to trauma and systemic inequities, they are carrying a load too heavy for a human to hold. You are agreeing that these women have a better chance at success through support rather than punishment and that the next generation will benefit because of it.
