When we give tours of The Lighthouse, we show people the building; hallways, suites, common areas. The Lighthouse is a lot more than just bricks, wood, and drywall. It’s a community of 68 residents living in our supported living tower, up to 25 women in our emergency women’s shelter, and 16 men each night in our emergency men’s shelter.
Over the last couple of months the staff have been taking snapshots of our supported living residents to put up on a bulletin board so new staff can put a face to a name. We also uploaded them to a Flickr photoset as a visual reminder that at it’s core, The Lighthouse is a family. I guess that means this our family portrait.
