Father Bach Haven (FBH) is a service-enriched community for formerly homeless men and women in downtown Spokane. Working with Catholic Housing Services of Eastern Washington (CHSEW), a division of Catholic Charities, Beacon was able to secure essential capital funding from the State of Washington for this project during a period of time when homeless services were being drastically reduced. Working together, Beacon and CHSEW then successfully procured important operations funding to ensure that the most needy men and women of Spokane could be served in a comprehensive manner by Father Bach Haven into the future. FBH is directly adjacent to Catholic Charities' House of Charity shelter, allowing for men and women to graduate into permanent housing and receive services right next door, as they are able.
