Your support will make an empty space a home this season of giving!

At LightHouse, we are proud to have created homes for 3,500+ DC residents and counting. Our dedicated staff works tirelessly every day to turn empty spaces into homes for our neighbors in need, and our work is only possible because of supporters like you.

This holiday season, we are reaching out to you for help

so we can help more neighbors like Ms. Jackson.

Ms. Jackson is an inspiring, resilient, and hardworking mother who, despite her challenging circumstances, never gave up on creating a better life for herself and her two-month-old baby, Diana. When Ms. Jackson found herself homeless while pregnant, she persevered. After months of navigating the system, she was finally approved for a housing voucher. Recently, she and her two-month old baby, Diana moved into an apartment in Northwest DC after leaving a local homeless shelter. However, their new home was lacking basic necessities. With the support of dedicated volunteers from Sibley Memorial Hospital, LightHouse DC fully furnished Ms. Jackson's apartment, making it a warm and welcoming home for her and her baby.
