How to Help2022-05-13T17:26:59-04:00

Lighthouse exists to be a Beacon of Hope for those in our community who need help the most. Families turn to us seeking support for the most basic of needs such as food or shelter. Many of these are seeking help for the first time. At Lighthouse, we envision a community where everyone has a safe place to call home. Thanks to the generosity of volunteers and donors like you, we are making an impact for our neighbors in need.
