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. 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. Johnson and her family:
Ms. Johnson is a single mom of two young children – a 6-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter. Before Ms. Johnson was relocated to her currently apartment, she was involved in a domestic violent relationship. She recently lost her 5-month-old son and is having a very difficult time. LightHouse services can help give her a brand new start in her new home.
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.
