Beacon Hill Civic Association Community Corner

BHCA Updates

Because of current conditions, the BHCA will host a virtual Annual Meeting on May 18th  to which members will be invited. We will be sending joining instructions the day before the meeting. This will be a voting meeting only.

The Beacon Award, normally presented at the BHCA Annual Meeting, has been postponed for now.

We hope that you are doing well and encouraged by the signs of Spring throughout Beacon Hill.

We ask that you to support our local businesses in any way you can. They need our help now more than ever. Go to our website at to see how you can help.

Our neighbors at Suffolk University entered into an agreement with the City of Boston to house to repurpose 172 beds in their Somerset Street dormitory, to help ease congestion and increase social distancing in existing shelters in Boston. This facility will be managed in collaboration between the Pine Street Inn and the Boston Public Health Commission. This facility is not for quarantine, but rather to relieve pressure for regular use of existing shelters.

Calling All Kids!

Would you like to make someone smile? We are inviting neighborhood kids to make a card for our neighbors who live at Beacon House on Myrtle Street. A pre-made card or one you make yourself will be enough to brighten someone’s day and let our neighbors know that they are in our thoughts. Write your message in your card and put it in an envelope. Address it to the BHCA at 74 Joy Street, Boston, MA 02114, and note “Beacon House” on the back of the envelope. You can mail it to the BHCA or drop it in our mail slot at the Joy Street door. We will deliver the cards to the Beacon House! Thank you!
