Welcome to Beacon for Hope

Beacon for Hope is a Suicide Prevention 501 ©(3) non-profit dedicated to linking our community together through education, resources, support, and hope for those who have been affected by suicide. We proudly serve the Emporia and surrounding areas.

100% of the proceeds benefit scholarships for Emporia High and surrounding area high school students, Emporia State University, and opportunities for community members to participate in formal mental health and suicide prevention training programs.

Hornets for Hope


Hornets for Hope is a group of students who are motivated to spread suicide awareness across campus.  We will host an event each year to allow the opportunity for students to connect with other students who suffer or have suffered from depression, suicidal ideation, mental illness, or the loss of a loved one.  Our goal is to educate the campus community about suicide prevention and to make available resources for anyone who may be in crisis.
