Vice President Advancement & Communications, Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative

The Organization

Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative has a vision that ‘all people have a home’. We are an experienced housing organization that operates supportive and affordable homes, develops affordable and supportive housing, shelters families, and organizes to impact housing policy. Our focus is on households who make less than $30,000 a year and those who are experiencing homelessness. The nearly 100 congregations who make up our collaborative are putting their faiths into action through leadership, advocacy, organizing, and service.
At Beacon we believe that systemic racism causes housing inequities. As a learning organization we are interested in adding individuals who hold high levels of cultural competency and who are willing to learn and work with others to deepen our capacity to address bias and racial inequities. Visit our website for more information about our strategies, programs and how our values of risk taking, race equity and inclusive decision making supports our learning and continued evolution.

Beacon has recently voluntarily recognized a union for employees. At the time of this posting, Beacon and Union Employees are engaged with and committed to a collective bargaining process with the shared goal and mission that ‘all people have a home’.
