Beacon House Association of San Pedro
The Beacon House Association of San Pedro is a state-certified, residential substance abuse recovery program for men with a sincere desire to achieve long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
As residents of the Beacon House, the men are provided with food, shelter, counseling, peer group support, educational opportunities and career training through our social enterprise programs, including the Beacon House Thrift Shop. This allows the men to develop the life, career and social skills they need to build a foundation in recovery, while preparing them for a strong reintegration into the job market and a bright future when they return to their family, home and community.

words from beacon house clients
Hear from hundreds of patients who have received support and care
I came to The Beacon House a broken man. They accepted me with open arms when I had nothing but the cloths on my back and not a penny to my name. They nursed me back to health and showed me how to live life on life's terms without resorting to drinking or using. I didn't think there was any hope of me ever changing, that my life was over. But it wasn't. In fact they showed me that it had just begun! I owe everything to this house. How can you put a price on a new lease in life? You can't. I hope to always be involved with The Beacon House and will do whatever I can to help them continue there mission.
I will be forever grateful to the Beacon House Association of San Pedro for helping save my life. After 35 years of untreated alcoholism I arrived at the Beacon House out options, money having pushed away all family and friends. Over the past 15 months I learned and gained the tools necessary to remain sober the rest of my life. I recently starting working again and learning to become a productive member of society. My life today is more than I ever expected and would not be here without the support and staff at the Beacon House. It is truly a special place.
I was completely broken and full of fear when I was welcomed into the Beacon House. I had no idea there was a place like this in the world. By following some simple directions I began to have purpose in my life. I could look myself in the mirror and actually like the person I saw. My eyes have light, hope and love in them. That empty pit inside me filled up. I made friends I will have for life. I learned how to be honest and a law abiding citizen. I began to really care for others and wanted to be a helpful person. This is more than a treatment center. It's a lifechanging center. Thank you to all the wonderful men both clients and staff that have been a part of my recovery. If you are broken and have tried other treatment centers this is the place for you. I am not saying it is easy but it works and works well. I could write an entire book on this lifechanging experience. Thank God for directing me to this wonderful place.
I arrived on the steps of the Beacon House in December of 1993 after completing a 90 day stay at an L.A. county run facility where my councilor recommend The Beacon House. The morning groups and mandatory fun and daily reminders of accountability have set my path of Sobriety. I am a productive member of society I am employed married and own my own home we have 3 children and 3 grandkids in a blended family that fills our home with Love and energy a far cry from what could have been. Thank you Beacon House.
My name is Daniel Velky, my experience with The Beacon House is a life changing one. I was at the house for three and a half years. In 2014 I left the house and continued using alcohol and drugs. After three days i realized how i messed up and called every day for 6 months, knowing that The Beacon House was something extraordinary. After many surrenders I have been clean and sober and god filled for three and a half years, I have a host of friends a purpose and a job helping the homeless community and being reintroduced to someone who I thought I would only visit at his graveside. Thank you God and The Beacon House for never giving up on me and believing in me.
I don't think I can express how much the beacon house has helped change my life. I came to the beacon house in 2011 and my life has not been the same since. They provided a safe environment for me to do the work necessary to build a solid foundation in recovery. These are people who clearly love what they do and have dedicated their lives to helping others. I really cant say enough about this organization and it has inspired me to spend my life helping others in need.
I came to the Beacon House over two years ago, 25 years old with no hope. The men of the Beacon House took me in and showed me care and compassion. Today I have 110 brothers and I am no longer hopeless. The Beacon House has shown me how to think of others and be helpful wherever I go. I am building a relationship with my family who wanted nothing to do with me, I am also enrolled in college. Thank you Beacon house for being my family.
