Cleveland-Cliffs Inc

Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation had a unique opportunity to make a real difference in the Marquette community, and the Upper Peninsula more broadly, by supporting the reestablishment of Beacon House.  Beacon House provides compassionate and supportive services in a safe, affordable place to stay for patients, families, loved ones, and caregivers in times of medical crisis when home is too far way. Beacon House executes this mission with great warmth, dedication, and sense of service.

That is why the Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation made a five-year pledge to support the construction of a new Beacon House that will be adjacent to the new UP Health System – Marquette, which opened in June 2019. As the only Level 2 Trauma Center in the Upper Peninsula, UP Health System – Marquette serves the entire UP region. Patients and caregivers may be miles away from home, but Beacon House provides a comforting, supportive environment when other venues may be out of financial reach. 

Partner Testimony

Our community looks to Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation to play a leadership role in supporting Cliffs workers and their families, and they never disappoint!

Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation has made it possible for our organization to grow, expand, and continue to compassionately serve the people of the Upper Peninsula when they are in medical crisis, and "home" is too far away. Without this support, we would be unable to move forward with our plans to build a new Beacon House next to the new Marquette hospital. We are eternally grateful for the time the Foundation has invested in getting to know our community, and for the significant grant to help us provide a safe, affordable place to stay for those who need to be close to the hospital.
