Gateway Foundation, the former operator of the historic Beacon House, one of the first treatment centers for substance use disorders in the western United States, located in Pacific Grove, California, today announced that $2 million in funds from the sale of its property are now available to provide grants to organizations with similar missions and to establish further services in the community.   

Organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, Beacon House ceased operations in 2021 but remains committed to supporting health and wellness initiatives in Monterey County community.

Beacon House, a beacon of hope for individuals and families facing challenges related to substance use disorder and mental health, served as a vital resource center providing residential treatment, counseling, outpatient support groups, educational workshops, and other essential services. While the doors are not currently open, the legacy of Beacon House lives on through the opportunity to make a lasting impact on health and wellness across Monterey County.

“We are pleased to announce that some funds from the sale of the Beacon House property will be used to support non-profit organizations dedicated to promoting health and wellness from substance use disorders,” said Jeremy Klemanski, President and CEO of Beacon House and its parent organization Gateway Foundation. “Although Beacon House operations have ceased, our commitment to improving health remains unwavering. We believe these grants will continue to serve the Monterey community in meaningful ways.”

Nonprofit organizations with missions aligned with the former Beacon House are encouraged to apply for grant funding. Priority will be given to initiatives focused on providing treatment for substance use disorder, co-occurring mental health, education, advocacy, and outreach to underserved populations.

“We recognize the importance of ongoing support for wellness initiatives, especially in light of current challenges,” said Klemanski. “By investing in organizations with similar purposes, we aim to continue Beacon House’s mission of fostering healing, resilience, and hope in our community.”
