Lighthouse Youth & Family Services
Mission: Empower young people and families to succeed through a continuum of care that promotes healing and growth.
Lighthouse Youth & Family Services serves 3,500 young people and families in crisis each year. The agency provides a wide range of services to meet the needs of youth ages 0-24 and their families.
At Lighthouse, the light is always on, and the door is always open for any young person looking for help. And that’s only the beginning.
Once inside, they receive the personalized care and unconditional support they need to thrive. At Lighthouse, a wide range of services is available so the young person can connect with what they need in one place.
Approximately 400 young people sleep safely under a Lighthouse roof each night. And each one has the entire Lighthouse team on their side, providing access to therapy, case management, life skills training, and much more.
Whatever the challenge, Lighthouse is ready to support each young person and their family on their unique journey.
