Volunteering at Lighthouse


Volunteers are a big part of the Lighthouse family and play very key roles in the every day operation of our facility. They interact with clients by assessing their needs when they first walk through our doors by helping them with struggles likes paying utilility bills, feeding their families and foreclosure prevention. On any given day our facility has a number of volunteers performing a variety of jobs in every area within our walls. Lighthouse is extremely grateful to have such committed people working to fulfill our mission. Without our volunteers, Lighthouse could not operate as we do today. 


Volunteer Appreciation Award Winners

Every year Lighthouse selects our volunteers of the year from each department and recognizes their hard work and dedication at our Annual Volunteer Celebration luncheon. This year the winners chosen did not come easy for us. There were so many deserving individuals! Meet our volunteers of the year for 2012!
