Volunteers are an integral part of what the Lighthouse does; they help foster healthy communities and their service encourages our staff and residents. The residents of the Lighthouse benefit greatly from the service while volunteers gain a deeper understanding of inner-city life and the community we serve. For most, it is a life-changing experience!


We are always seeking passionate, dedicated and enthusiastic people to join our volunteer network!
