Nonprofits went virtual due to COVID-19. Some aren’t planning to go back
When the pandemic began, BEACON House, Inc., a Hagerstown nonprofit dedicated to providing STEAM education to low-income and minority students, lost not only most of its revenue streams but also the school buildings out of which it operated its before- and after-school care. Out of the five programs BEACON House normally offers, only Beacons of Health, which connects families and individuals with certified insurance navigators, survived the duration of the pandemic.
Like many nonprofits, BEACON House quickly realized its only option was pivoting to virtual programming. Now, even as Maryland schools plan to reopen, the nonprofit isn’t counting on pivoting back.
