I’m a founding board member of LightHouse DC. As many of you know, LightHouse helps individuals and families transitioning from homelessness in our community move and furnish their new homes. LightHouse is the only nonprofit in the DC metro area that consistently offers these critical services and also provides all of the logistical support. We believe an unfurnished living room, empty bedroom, or bare kitchen are more like a shelter than a home. Since LightHouse’s founding in 2017, we have created homes for over 800 neighbors.
Please join me to support LightHouse’s mission and help more neighbors like Ms. Rolark and her family:
Ms. Rolark is a mom of 5 young children. She had a job as a Certified Nursing Assistant, but she had to quit the job when her husband got heart problems and needed care at home. Ms. Rolark’s case manager is helping her get pots and pans and clothes and diapers for her kids and get them into school, but she really needs furniture to establish her home and then go back to work this spring. She is a very engaged mom and appreciates any help she can get. “We need = Lighthouse to help them make their new house a home so they can get back on their feet,” said Ms. Rolark’s case manager.
Ms. Rolark is precisely why LightHouse was organized. Will you help us help her? We can't do it without you!
Our online fundraising platform is a community where you can rally your family and friends to join you in your goal to create more homes for DC residents.
