WHERE HOPE SHINES

According to HUD statistics for Berks County, from September 2018-September 2019, a total of 1,403 women and 894 Children (ages 0-17) needed shelter services.

 

"A Shelter for women and children is vitally needed in our community. Our organization constantly receives phone calls from single mothers with nowhere to go when current shelters are full" 

BUILDING CAMPAIGN

Our current 25,000 square foot thrift store building will be transformed into the LightHouse Women & Children's Shelter. 45 residential rooms, each with private restroom facilities. This reduces public health issues common in dormitory-style settings, and enables greater versatility to accept single women, women with children, and homeless youth.
