About Us

The Beacon Hill Council (BHC) of Seattle is an all-volunteer community organization. Our mission is to advocate for a welcoming, diverse and healthy Beacon Hill community neighborhood. 

We are community builders:

  • We provide opportunities for our residents, business persons and property owners to improve our community, 

  • We hold open forums to discuss what is going on in our community and find solutions to problems.

  • We connect with different groups and agencies (non-profit and for-profit) to work together to solve issues and make improvements.
