Lighthouse Ministries serves over 2,000 families each year with their basic needs. We are a faith based, nonprofit, social service agency where participants receive ministry service aid for deposits or payments of rent, utilities, or necessary medications for thirty days or more and persons stranded may receive travel aid. Food and children's books are also provided. Lighthouse Ministries supports the whole family by building stronger relationships through our Strengthening Families Program. We work to prevent child abuse and neglect through our Working Mothers Education and Support Program and give greater mobility to handicapped persons through our Ramp Program. Lighthouse Ministries is involved with the First Friday Homeless Connect Event which is held each month and more than 28 agencies come together to provide their services to individuals and families who are in need.
