Working Together to Make a Difference

BEACH is a community partnership between citizens and faith, business, nonprofit and city organizations who are working together in Bringing an End to All City Homelessness.

Individually, each entity has made an impact on the homeless community, but BEACH believes we can achieve much more if we work together.

We strongly believe in our vision: our city, our homeless, our shared responsibility.

The Story Behind the Starfish

"...But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."
