Beacon of Life is a 34-bed home in Sherman Hill that provides community, healing, and growth for Central Iowa women who have faced trauma, abuse, substance use, incarceration, and homelessness. Our program is designed to assist our clients in achieving economic self-sufficiency through a trauma-informed approach that recognized and helps reduce the significant barriers they face in attaining housing and employment, maintaining sobriety, and reaching goals in education, health, and wellness.
Beacon of Life, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is the only shelter in Central Iowa that provides transitional housing with supportive services in a structured environment exclusive to single women.
Welcome to Beacon of Life's Cake Gala
Cake Gala exists to honor the graduates and support the operation of Beacon of Life, a 34-bed home in Sherman Hill that provides community, healing, and growth for Central Iowa women who have faced trauma, abuse, substance use, incarceration, and homelessness.

We have decided to offer a virtual attendance option for folks who would feel safest participating from the comfort of your homes. The virtual attendance can be selected at registration checkout.
With virutal attendance, you can still pick up a gourmet meal from the River Center and watch our full program online. You can even participate in the auction since all of the items will be hosted in the Givi auction app. If you bid on a cake, please note that it MUST be picked up the night of the event. Call us with any questions! 515-244-4713 ext 5.
