Lighthouse Community Centers (LCC)

Lighthouse Community Centers are a loving community serving our neighbors to break cycles of poverty in the communities we serve. We follow the way of Jesus by reflecting Christ’s transforming love, fostering community and growing individuals. At Lighthouse, we live to be strong role models, empower community members to be a catalyst for change and value volunteer development.
