Lighthouse is currently working tirelessly to fulfill our mission to provide support for those who are in vulnerable positions by providing social assistance, meals, clothing, personal hygiene, and community resources through outreaches which are held weekly in low-income communities across the state. Raising enough capital to support the needs of the ever-growing homeless population is a cumbersome task with the rise in food prices, gas prices, rent prices, and general inflation overall. It is a vicious cycle, and it promotes the need even more to accommodate those who are struggling or will eventually be struggling soon with shelter, food, and an opportunity to get back on their feet.
