Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry (BEAM) is a local organization with a mission to help families through emergencies and guide them to self sufficiency. It was founded in 1985 by the Beaches Ministerial Association to give Beaches residents a way to help their neighbors.

Today it provides multiple supports to qualified Beaches residents. These include:

  • Financial assistance for rent and utilities,

  • Food pantry (with access to fruits and vegetables from the Grace Garden on site),

  • Other supports through the calendar year.

Recently, BEAM added a Thrift Store and Food Pantry in Mayport. BEAM regularly needs food, household supplies, donations to the Thrift Store, dollars, and volunteers. To learn even more about this mission and/or get involved, please visit
