Beacon House began as a homework help program serving a dozen children in a donated basement apartment at Edgewood Terrace, now named Edgewood Commons. During our 30 years in the community, Beacon House has helped hundreds of students graduate from high school with a plan for continued education.
Beacon House is unique among District of Columbia afterschool entities as a place-based organization which serves children where they live, over long periods of time. Scores of youth who grew up coming to Beacon House return as adults to volunteer as academic tutors and athletics program coaches.
