The Beacon House History

The Beacon House Association of San Pedro was founded in 1970 by Father Art Bartlett, director of the Episcopal Seaman’s Center on 11th and Beacon, and Michael Dowling, a merchant seaman and recovering alcoholic. They envisioned a home where men struggling with alcohol can “sober up” and get back on their feet. Through dedicated staff, incredible generosity, unparalleled community support, and an unfailing sense of the program’s values, what was once a shelter for recovering alcoholics has grown into a comprehensive substance abuse recovery program for men.

We believe that recovery is possible for everyone and that everyone deserves the opportunity to receive the necessary support and resources to achieve it. Through our comprehensive treatment program, we aim to provide men with the tools and skills they need to overcome addiction and lead fulfilling lives.
