e 18th annual Hike for the Homeless benefits Family Promise of the Chippewa Valley Inc, which owns and operates the Beacon House Shelter in Eau Claire.

In 2020 we provided shelter and other services to 27 families with 52 children in our community. Our annual event helps provide us with the financial resources to provide these services.

Today Family Promise is the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness. While we’ve grown, the core of what we do is still local – partnerships within a city or county changing lives for the better.
