With over a century of service, the Mission continues to deliver food, clothing, friendship, hope, joy and love to those in need. As Lighthouse grows, we remain committed to serving the poor and homeless, while providing an opportunity for the church and community to partner with us.
Thank you for your support.
If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
