#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season.  It started in New York to celebrate and encourage charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. On Dec. 3rd, 2013, Northwest Ohio nonprofits are participating, too. Click here to make a donation to The Lighthouse and become a part of Northwest Ohio #Giving Tuesday!

Mission:

The Lighthouse Community Center (LCC) serves as a beacon of light that exemplifies a safe haven, a home away from home, for our community members in need of help and hope. We are a multi-cultural family environment instilled with love, encouragement and respect for one another. The LCC offers educational assistance and child care that will inspire success.boy

Here at the Lighthouse Community Center, we care about our children and their future. We will “light the way” by implementing educational, vocational, and preventative programs that will teach our children how to become productive and independent members of society while breaking the grip of generational poverty. We have been working diligently to offer services tailored to the needs of families and children living in urban Toledo.

We take special care to provide programs that encourage improved economic, societal, educational and vocational well-being. We offer eligible families low-cost day care, as well as free after-school and summer tutoring programs. The LCC facilitates an ongoing neighborhood beautification project, food and clothing drives, Healthy Lifestyles nutrition program, and child safety training. Additionally, the LCC sponsors an annual fishing trip to Erie Island Resort, offering local youth a unique day of recreation and mentoring.

In short, the LCC aspires to improve the quality of life for every person that comes through our door.
